Sutra: Lies - Poem by Gina Borrebach

When knowing somebody’s told a lie,
Never confront the liar with the lie.
Instead, graze what’s being lied about,
Then observe the person’s rebound.

You will learn more about the lie and the liar,
And will recognize easier next time, a falsifier.

For if you confront the liar with the lie,
He or she will refine the deceit,
And it will be even harder for you, a lie,
To distinguish, in their following deed.
