|What a sad-but-all-too-true observation on what our society has sunk to. As electronic media permeates the very fabric of society, too many of us simply cannot tell the difference between truth and lies, any more... Doc

|The truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, might this even be a white lie?
The only truth I know is Jesus Christ (John 14:6) and the more I get to know Him the more I learn just how important His grace and mercy really is.
Good write and thanks for sharing your poetic boldness.
God Bless You and Your Loved Ones

|Good thought, I could see children asking this after hearing for so long this from their parents. Do all really lie? I doubt that, we only see the ones who get caught on the news so what are our children to think. Lady J|

|Point well-taken! I agree with Safi. Candy and Carmen, et al, hit the nail on the head. This is very clever. ~~ You will probably
be interested in an old expression I ran across in a crostic
puzzle. White lies used to be called taradiddles. Seems to me it says more. Like your poem! 'Pea' <3

|You do have a point there! Well said.

|Very clever! 'White lie' is an oxymoron, yes?|

|White lies turns so many things black, and what darkness we live in because of them. Great poem!|

|Everyone has a different perspective as to how they perceive what is said and done, and what they say and do. If you leave perspective out of the equation, everything is an accusation...and therefore a lie.

|Lying, for this person is no way to live my life... I may not like the truth, but I can accept it...|
|Reviewed by Miller Caldwell
|Very Thoughtful indeed. Its an unusual poem but I try to keep white lies excluded from my life.
A thought which I can share with you is your name. Mine is pronounced like yours and often written that way but its not! Where did the extra "U" creep in?

|unfortunately, the lies told by governments are more than mere white lies ... i would hope they would be run by truth and conviction ... though i sense a bit of sarcasm in the final verse ...|

|i was just saying that...about the way our country is run...interesting poem.|

|People lie at one time or another.
When they lie deep enough to convince themselves,
then it becomes the truth.

|I hear what you are saying..my theory on little white lies are what you tell a two year old to get them to do as you would like in order to halt a temper tantrum
I'm not sure what our government tells could be considered little at all..
Good thoughts Lillian..Lisa
