Veritas

Deception surround
the very last vestige
In cacophony, a sound
subdued, yet of prestige

Triumphant mendacity
pervades far wide
while righteous veracity
is thrown aside

The power of truth
many resent
when asked for it
remain reticent

Truth is bitter
be that as it may
yet many times better
than a lie that’ll betray

Tenacious, many cling
to fibs, and lies
failing to see under
their saccharine guise

In responding honestly
never tarry
The burden of falsehood
never carry

Spurn encumbering untruth
to truth loyal be
you will find that
it shall set you free
