Why put on trial, ‘virtue’s’ cherished child
And indict it, for blasphemy
Amid views deified, and beliefs reviled
Vain war of thoughts, waged by ‘cognoscenti’!
Had the truth, not been, a finessed lie
And lie, not a truth, so glorified
How ‘black and white’, could beautify
Our existence, so magnified!
Lest we make it, a meager, numbers game
And martyr truth, o’er referendum
To coronate lie, by another name
And carouse, a façade’s dualism!
With the showiest shout, pluckiest whisper
Pseudo-moral conjectures, we deliberate
Our truths, as true, as our faiths infer
Beyond lies’ luring bait, Truth Ain’t A Debate!
