What Never Lies ?
( A Ghazal Sonnet )
if never asked questions, one never lies
it’s the color of blood that never lies
sailor’s hopes rescued through fog weary skies
Fresnel lensed lighthouse light that never lies
hypocrite’s poisoned words spat, he denies ?
Blarney stone’s flattering chat never lies ?
burrowed in flesh, butterfat in disguise ?
all-seeing mirror says fat never lies
bet me a nickel, I’ll raise you two lies
mama’s boy scandalized brat never lies ?
how death is answered, when we say goodbyes
carved in stone legacy that never lies
making the best of things, some turn blind eyes
for when truth tolls, a Bell, that never lies
