The Truth, The Lie And The Fact


The truth, the lie and the fact have met.

Let’s listen to their chat!


The truth told to the fact: Everyone lies.

The fact answered: Here is my advice:

Don’t be in a hurry with the conclusion

As everything in this world is an illusion.


The truth said:

Who will remember me?

Whose conscience will gnaw?

Will the lie will a nondiscriminatory  law?


It’s hard to tell the truth,

It’s easier to lie.

You have to forsooth,

Otherwise I’ll die.


The lie was near by listening.

What  nonsense you are saying !

I am so important in man's life.

I help to win in a strife.


The lie was graceful .

It was beautiful and playful.

It was not jealous but sweet,

So, darling it was, indeed!


From it’s sweet lips

The words flowed like the streams.

All those flattering words

Everyone took as the truth.


It lied without  blush.

It tried everything  to hush,

But so many men had  problems

If the lie they  welcomed.


 People would like the lie to banish ,

They would like the lie to vanish.

They would like it never be near,

Into thier life to interfere.


But the lie has quickly decided

To make the union with the truth.

It was so nicely guided

By the cutest sleuth.


So, today the truth and the lie

Over the whole land fly.

Where is the truth? Where is the lie?

Can you tell if it's so well?


The fact was left alone.

Only by God it was well known.
