Finger Lickin Truth

If the truth was pretty And it smelled just right… Or it taste like a t-bone And came in diet light… If truth was static free And came in easy stages… Or in scratch n sniff colors On large n glossy pages… If the truth looked good On my arm uptown… Or sang like a bird In a sequin gown… But, … the fool is king, his folly law His head is thick and fingers raw Justice is blind and wisdom’s a pearl Luck is a lady and Truth’s a girl Her sister is good intentions The procrastinating whore Who knocks down the walls And ignores all the doors From her cuts I have learned Truth is the flame, not the burn She won’t change and she won’t bend Way too uppity for my friends To some, Truth is getting rich And finding perfect mates But Truth is just a lonely girl Who never gets a date
