The Truth About the Truth
You can bend it, stretch it, wring it,
twist it, state it, swear it, shout it out
but, the truth is: the truth is (still & all)
a matter of perception. Sure as shootin’,
there’s a tiny lie in every sooth
(and vice versa).
Lines become idioms
become clichés (because there’s
more truth than un- inside ‘em). But
(no matter what) you may rest assured:
what you sow (& what you reap) is all
(in the end) nothing (more nor less)
than a twinkle in the eye
of the beholder.
