The Truth Will Not Out

“Moralists, for example, seem to despise the act of lying in bed.”

Why are we surprised to learn
Truth spreads more slowly than lies?
Whole religions built on lies
Bully and control our lives.

I wager after the war
Hens will still lay eggs
And humans will not
Have forgotten how to make

Omelettes. The love for music
Will persist undiminished.
Plato wrote Socrates thought

Literacy would ruin
Memory. The truth never
Got out much. That truth just was.
