Fiddling with her coffee mug, she looked out the window with dead eyes
Ugly vibes hung in the air on words that shouldn’t have been said
Everyone, even him, had to understand life’s fundamental truth
Leave her alone until she tanked up on at least one mug full
So many wanted her to stay inside the box of their construction
Happy and content with the societal norms
All she wanted to do was be free, to be herself
Maybe if they all accepted that she would have bloomed
Except they belittled her for being different till she hid away her truth until it was gone
You think he memorizes his stories?
All of them are made up right on the spot
Really, he takes a seed of truth and plants it in his imagination
Now his voice waters that seed and out of that grows amazing
Only the Allfather could see all with one eye
Donning his broad hat instead of a crown
It might have made him look simple
Nothing could be further from the truth
Come join our club, we have all the truth
Unless you challenge what we are selling
Let’s just say you’ve got to drink the Kool Aid
Then do what you are told. We know better. Or else.
They were so worried about all the lies
Reading through forum after forum to authenticate facts
Until their eyes crossed with information overload
That was when they discovered a fact that superseded all others
How few people actually really cared
Nothing had been this hard to crack
Until he was confronted with finding the kernel of truth in this conundrum
This was going to drive him crazy!
For goodness sake, I thought you would be prettier.
Really? That’s how you want to start our date?
Actually, yes. I told you I was honest to a fault when we talked on the phone
Now that was truth in advertising. Refreshing. Still, you’re a jerk, and I’ll be leaving.
Knew that would happen. At least I didn’t have to buy your dinner.
Little more could be said, much less done
Everyone just stared as she walked across the floor
Gwen had accomplished the nigh impossible
Eyewitnesses would spread her story from here
New tales even more fanciful would be spun from the cloth of this truth
Destiny can kiss her ass. She owned that bitch
Twisted thoughts tumbled from his lips
Outwardly he kept his face smooth and composed
Really on the inside, he was spinning in tight circles
Quitting the torrent of lies, he took a deep breath
Unsure his verbal torrent had convinced her of anything
Eventually, he decided to throw in the truth to see what that would do
Definitely hadn’t expected the truth to have such an impact
