Sweet white little fabrications


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sweet Little Lies.”

Sweet little lies that flatter us so,

White ones that make the world go round,

I’m merely being polite,

I’m merely being mannered,

And the rule is:

If the untruth can’t harm—permanently,

and the effect fibbed about is temporary,

Lie.

—Linus Fernandes.
