We all may think we know what truth is 
But can the facts stand up
To water being pored over them?

A lie is but the underside of truth
To spin a web of deceit is just 
The stretching of the facts for greater appeal 

To admit you lied is never done
To be caught out is to have
Done a sloppy inconsistent job

Lies will be facts if they link in a reasonable sequence
A speck or two of the known can easily enfold and camouflage
People it may believe as they are required to
When a lie is beautifully told 

Time is truths good friend on occasion 
Fiction that was never meant to be real 
May attain legitimacy 
As time works its magic
Usage can and does transform

To embellish and smooth the rough edges 
Is but to make a lie more palatable 
Consumption is known to lead to acceptance
Despite digestion later unearthing inconsistencies
Woe betide those found to have lied knowingly 

To be fooled is to the victim
A violation of trust 
A shameful realization that 
What we think we know 
Is not what it actually is 

Truth can vary
Depending on the ear that does receive it
Receptiveness is the key to the 
Cons that truth may have in store   
A dangerous thing is a lie
That never attains 
The status of un-contentious truth 

There is never any place for doubt
If a fact is to be considered such
Accept what you will
Believe what you must 
Don’t ever
Blindly trust
