the story of a lie and the truth...





***

a little lie once was told.
wrapped in a smile & clad in plain white
nothing too fancy to behold,
it was just a little lie.


the plain truth once was said
slithering silently through the dark veiled eyes
a venomous spite, fraught with dread,
it was just the plain truth.


***


the little lie if unraveled
becomes the venomous bitter truth,
and entombs the poisoned heart forever.

bringing a cheer instead of a mournful cry
keeping the dark veil of truth at bay,
is the innocuous little lie.




...so the moral of the story is?

Truly, to tell lies is not honorable;
but when the truth entails tremendous ruin,
To speak dishonorably is pardonable.

Truth and lies. The age old debate. And reality !

In the times of sach ke saamna and crores at stake. Topical indeed !!

Nachi said...

@ Kavi: forget topical, i'd rather be somewhere tropical!! *sigh*

"a bottle o' rum,
a hammock in the sun.
one kohl-smudged eye to keep
on the fine lasses who wear flowers in their hair;
while the eye underneath the patch looks out for me mermaid.
cause i must go to where she calls me out;
my never ending chase."



...ok yeh, kuch zyada hi sach hoh gaya!!

:D


@ Mehreen: thank you...thank you...thank you...i'll try to be careful!!

:D



@ d'Rat: teri logic toh infallible hai!! by now you should be ruling the world missy (at least the rodent half of it)...

...while you have been busy traveling, i have been busy being sick with the flu...but i'm fine now. :D

Moral of the STORY?
I thought its a POEM!!!

If something does not have a moral, is it immoral?


Anyways, was it swine flu?

Nachi said...

@ Stupid: buhahahahahahahahaaa!!! story/poem ek hi baat. but tere immoral prehistoric dimaag mein se morality mein expect bhi nahi karta...

...and no, not the swine flu. but none-the-less sickening & equal misery inducing common influenza. i could give you the doc's report if ya want mate!!!
