It seems reality’s been hacked.
The dice are loaded. Cards are stacked.
Truth is no longer so exact.
Actuality’s been cracked
and reason pilloried and racked. Verisimilitude is yacked and common sense has long been sacked, along with logic, reason, tact. So what’s been rumored, gossiped, quacked is now more true than proven fact!
Though I always tell it if I can,
of the brutal truth, I’m not a fan.
(It’s the brutal part that bothers me,
and not the actual honesty.)
In fact, let’s institute a pact
to exercise the utmost tact.
When telling others just what “is,”
be gentle, be they Sir or Ms;
for though it’s not right to be truthless,
there’s no excuse for being ruthless.
The Prompt: Truth or Dare—Is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?
