Some Kind of Lie

Are any lies
worth repeating,
be it their size
or their meaning?
The gospel truth
is bullet proof
for stories core.

Hey! My daughter Bee is having a sale at their Etsy site for “Hand sewn decorative items” – RaccoonStitches! Please check it out!

Too bad I couldn’t find a better video of the Marti Jones‘ song that inspired this:

On Principle

Her knife cut deep
Her words deeper
But though I weep
bleeding’s cheaper
For while she’s strong
she’s mostly wrong
and I won’t lie
