Learn To Lie - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Tell me a lie that I am beautiful,
And I can be happy just for a while,
Tell him a lie that he is smart,
And he can be proud just for a second,
Tell her a lie that she is as busy as a bee,
Then watch her doing chores and teas,
Tell them a lie that their land oozes out honey,
And then watch them saving the Queen from malady,
Tell me a lie again that I am beautiful,
And let me be happy for a while.
