Truth ~ Dirty little bit of scandal

“TRUTH?” a poem July 16, 2019 (Tuesday)

“If I-am to trust you, I-WANT ABSOLUTE-TRUTH,

‘The-Truth, yes, The-Whole-Truth!’ ” said-John-W.-Booth!!

“I NEED-always-to-know, I-can de-pend-upon-you,

So THE TRUTH, yes, The WHOLE Truth -I’ll-expect-YOU TO-DO!”

“OK!” [from-Honest-Abe!] “But-WAIT! Are-you-sure?

For, sometimes – THE TRUTH! it-may-be a-blur!”

“Well, the truth-is:-I-DON’T-TRUST-YOU!” so-John shot-Him-one-night,

But he REALLY-JUST-DIDN’T-TRUST-HIMSELF! It’s hard, without-light!

“Tell-THE-TRUTH,” said my-Lady;

“And-I-don’-want – no MAY-BEE,

Because, my-Honey-Man, I-KNOW-you-can-do-i[ee]t,

Plus, If-you-don’t, I-will-throw-me-a-fi(ee)t!”

“ALWAYS – The TRUTH!?” (Whatever THAT is!)

Always-tellin’-The-Truth? “Well – (you-KNOW!) That’s HIS,

Responsibility!” YES! All-The-Ladies-a-GREED!

“TRUTH? TRUTH! So, as-to-NOT-impede,

THE PROGRESS, Some – progress – that-The-TRUTH-will-provide!”

THIS IS WHERE A L L THE MEN – NEED TO RUN-AWAY AND HIDE,

When they hear: “We want A-PROMISE – of TRUTH – all the time!!”

“It-t’ain’t-possible!” say-eth The Lord – Of -The-“Realistic-Rhyme!”

fin <3

Postnote! In fact, TOTAL TRUTH – has-always-been a myth* and-a-fable,

NO ONE HAS SUCH FACILITY! It’s TRUE! No one’s able!

Beside[s]! (This is TRUE!) IF YOU NEVER LIE – SOME OF THE TIME,

YOUR NOSE SHRIVELS UP – TO THE SIZE OF A DIME!

And-oft’ to save lives, feelings [from getting hurt] & just plain To-Save-Your-Marriage,

You GOTTA LIE! Who-HANDLES THE TRUTH? Let’s ride in my carriage,

And-realize: If total TRUTH was The Standard, NO ONE WOULD BE MARRIED!

And ALL MEN – would-be-nervous-wrecks, ’cause-they’d-be-so-awf’lly-harried!

So, GOD, in Her Wisdom, devised “The White Lie,”

So, come-on-now, Sports’ Fans, get out there and: FIB! (I mean: cry! or die! or LIE!**)

  • – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzMfzPFcvJU

** – or is that LAY? lay or lie gently, next to HER – and stroke HER hair – or something!

Tell-her you love her! You DO, you know! Your life would be a shambles without her! It would be, you know! Just a shambles! Be a man! Eat a sandwich! Curse a little! Kiss a dog! Pet a cat; go-on, stroke that pussy! Send President Trump “a tweet!” OK?

The Halloween Princess

“THE HALLOWEEN*** PRINCESS!” a poem July 19 2019

ADORA*-was-born with-the-name-of-a-princess, so you-know she-wears a crown,

And-she’s-ADORned-with-a sequin-diamond-dress, silver-‘n’-gold-all-around!

Her “regal” smile so betrays – The-“Blue-Blood”-which-through-her-veins-doth-flow,

So, to-our-princess, the men folk clammer – for to-her they-wish to-go,

To-be-close and-to-gently-feel – Her-royal-warm -ma- jest – y!

I-love-her-and-love – to-say her-name – when-we-have -a-fine-“High-Tea,”**

Where-she-is-presented in her beauty! for everyone to see!

Her-eyes-have-mascara, my-lovely-Adora,

During-Hallowed’s***-festi-vi-ty!

fin <3

  • – “Adora” is from The Greek, meaning, gift, treasure, adored, beloved . . .

** – High (or Afternoon) Tea, observed in some genteel cultures, preciously highlighted in this blog, is also known as ‘low tea,’ and is what most people think of when they hear the term “HIGH TEA.” It involves manners, lace, and dainty foods. It is typically served in the mid-afternoon, traditionally served on low tables, hence its two names. An afternoon tea menu is light and focuses on scones, finger sandwiches. Marmalade, lemon curds, and herbed butter may also be included. Favorite teas include Earl Grey and Assam as well as chamomile and mint. Historically, a high tea was a working class meal, served on HIGH tables, after 5:00 P. M. Historically, afternoon tea was considered to be a ladies’ social occasion, and it is more often enjoyed by women than men to this day. The Seventh Duchess of Bedford Anna Maria Russell is thought to have started this tradition, so all the ladies could have a mid-afternoon snack and “chat” a bit!

*** – All Hallows’ Eve = Halloween, The Eve of All Hallows’ or All Saints’ Day!

Pictures: of The Seventh Duchess of Bedford – and – showing her “sitting room,” often called: The Blue Room! very elegante! 🙂 – “Anna,” [or Hannah] is from The Hebrew, meaning: favor, grace, purity, beauty . . .

Alan Watts ~

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.
