JH Sayyar's Sonnets

53
What is lie?  And what is truth?
All admit a lie brings ever shame,
And in it lays no universal sooth,
Pretty words their thought-frame
A wise man says telling a lie is a sin:
But all wise make it knowingly daily,
Just the other’s illegal wealth to win,
All fond of telling a lie ah do it gaily.
What is sin none can me this tell?
Joseph caught his brother due to lie:
The self-made lie did know it well,
He did know well his brother’s cry!

Nothing lie, nothing truth but the time,
Proves it well that is my Lord’s hymn
