Catchee In The Lie - Poem by Ima Ryma

'If you tell the truth, ' Mark Twain said,
'You don't have to remember...'(lies)
Tom Sawyer went to the woodshed
For a few whoppers - no surprise!
George Washington cut down a tree,
Told Dad, 'I cannot tell a lie.'
Cuz Dad already knew that he
Had done that nasty deed - that's why.
To lie - it's knowing if and when,
That is the real truth of the art.
Goes back to original sin,
Adam and Eve gave us the start.

I should not lie, the goodies taught,
But I was bad cuz I got caught.
