The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth At My Booth!

So many people go about and give a tell me the truth shout. But do they really want such a thing always at their wing? A lot of times that seems to be no as they give you, at best, a what do you know.

How do I look?
Like a two bit crook.
I mean oh so nice.
I hope that didn't cost a high price.

How are you?
Happier when you aren't in view.
I mean pretty good.
You just misunderstood.

Do you mind doing this?
I'd like to throw it on the floor and take a piss.
I mean no problem at all.
I'll do it after this call.

Why aren't you done?
Because I'd rather go for a run.
I mean because you're an ass.
Damn, they just come in mass.

Want to donate today?
Rather watch you eat hay.
I mean I already did.
I donated a stuffed squid.

Want to go for lunch?
Not with you pompous bunch.
I mean not today.
Maybe come May.

Would you buy that?
Not even if I was a rat.
I mean sure it looks great.
I hope you didn't pay a huge rate.

Does this make me look fat?
Like a butterball plump rat.
Oh, I mean no way.
Who cares if you'll float in the bay.

Did you hear that?
No, because I'm two feet farther away, you dingbat.
I mean, sure it was such a noise.
Someone is sure playing with fun toys.

Can't you say anything nice?
Sure, for a steep price.
I mean just not to you.
Damn, I hate being true.

So is the truth always a perk? Does it always work? Hmm I guess it depends on who it is to. Some may dunk your head in the loo. Choose wisely your truth battles and sass. You may not get away with it like my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. Whole Truth Nothing But The Truth
    That's a title so noble at your booth
    They need to inquire
    Why being so sincere
    Perhaps not to succumb and soothe

  3. Often a white lie comes due
    When a black lie would be too much true
    Some people cannot tell a lie
    Then watch heaven fall from the sky

  5. as jack once said
    you cant handle the truth
    people would accuse us of abuse
    if we chose to truly tell it
    then again it might be honest
    and we could build trust
    and overcome the angst
    of hearing the truth

    1. True,some trust we may build indeed
      If only the truth took seed

  6. They say the truth shall set you free
    But sometimes it will offend thee
    Some truths are better left unsaid
    Better to just be dreamed while one is in bed

    1. That is true
      Let people have no clue

  7. If you say everything that is true many will hate you

  8. Sometimes we need to pick our battles
    so occasionally a white lie might rattle

    some say the truth will set you free
    but, it could bring others to their knees

    life is about searching for ultimate "truth"
    but, you may need to be a bit of a sleuth
    use wisdom when visiting the truth booth

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Have to slink around
      Until that ultimate truth is found

  9. Sometimes the truth has to be tempered. If one doesn't like someone's new shoes, perhaps one can say at least that they like the color. There is always a bit of kind truth a person can say, I think..............if one likes to keep one's friends!!

  11. It's interesting how many lies are constructed just so we won't offend.

    I enjoyed this post, by the way.

    Now, was that a lie, or the truth?

    Heh, heh, heh...

  14. I think over the years my husband
    has learned that it is best to tell a lie
    and not the truth if I were to ask him
    if something makes me look fat; he will usually deny.

  15. Some get defensive
    If the truth is offensive
    Is honesty
    the best policy?
    Good question today
    at your bay! :)

    Replies
    1. Not always the best
      Sometimes lies need to become a guest

      Delete
  16. Maybe the problem is really in the question, like, "Does this make me look fat?"
    Or "would you like to do this or that".
    If you expect the truth
    your good mood shouldn't go poof
    if someone answers in frankness
    because of your little questions.
    haha.

  22. Sometimes truth so simple
    in front of your nose
    like rat or milk...
    so nobody trust,
    when you pronounce it
    they think it's your quirk...

  23. Keats once said 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,'
    Whether or not these words are true
    depends entirely up to you.
    I say "Be careful what you say or flaunt
    for sure the words come back to haunt!"

    What we think and what we say
    are often two completely different things,
    but tact is most always the better choice.

    Nice writing, Pat!

    1. haha yeah that is true
      Think and say a whole different view
      Tact is needed in most cases
      But sometimes it is fun to just let the truth fly at some places

  24. Truth is often overrated
    Some things should not be stated
    Silence can say a lot more than intended
    Better than letting the truth get bended.
