(Mostly in Jest.)
Just because someone said it, doesn’t make it true.
Still everything I hear, I pass on to you.
You tell someone else who has proof that verifies…
What I’ve said is wrong. It’s just a pack of lies.
So I get on the internet and google what’s disputed.
You really didn’t know what you said has been refuted?
The issue is no longer who is wrong or who is right.
It’s our stupid ego that keeps us in the fight.
I must convince the world (or everyone I know),
That you are pathological and say what isn’t so.
You stomp your feet and pound your fist.
You vow to make me pay for this.
Bring it on, I say. I know I’ll win this one.
(I’ve got a lot more lies where all of those came from.)
You sit there at the table. You think you’re well prepared.
I believe another’s lies and hope that you’ll run scared.
Has honesty been lost to the cleverest deception?
The world is suffering. Do you think there’s a connection?
If I’m truthful I’ll admit
There are times that I forget.
Watch out for lies wearing lipstick
They’re still lies…IT’S A TRICK!
And just because you heard it, doesn’t mean it’s true.
I must try to resist passing it on to you.
Believe in your Higher Power who leads us to the truth and replaces ego with humility.
