We Can Do It... - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi
When telling of lies make someone happy, let us lie,
When speaking of truth hurt someone, let us lie,
When the spouse asks us to assess, let us lie,
When the friends pester for opinion, let us lie,
When the boss arrives in shabby face, let us lie,
When the wife cooks our food and asks us to taste,
Then eagerly waits for our answers, let us lie,
When the husband speaks about his adventures,
In unknown manly languages, let us act and lie.
When the old parents talk about their vibrant health,
When the young children show their tiny biceps,
Let us lie. harmless lies should be told. let us lie.
