Whenever I lie I seem to get tongue tied,

On the face of it you may well think it’s fine,

But it makes me sigh and I have even cried,

As it leads one to a life of poor design,

I hate when people say that lying is bad,

Sometimes it’s the best option that is at hand,

For telling the truth can make people feel sad,

Whenever I lie I seem to get tongue tied,

On the face of it you may well think it’s fine,

But it makes me sigh and I have even cried,

As it leads one to a life of poor design,

I hate when people say that lying is bad,

Sometimes it’s the best option that is at hand,

For telling the truth can make people feel sad,

Or lead you to enduring things you can’t stand,

Like assessing the appearance of a friend,

Being made to read the writings of laymen,

Having to attend a play in the West End,

Or visiting a relative yet again,

I’ve often done things I’d rather not have done,

Such as kissing an unappealing person,

Or doing stuff that others seem to find fun,

And so I wish to change before things worsen,

I heard there was someone who knew of a cure,

And so I went off so as to find out more,

With time I found the one I was looking for,

They gave advice which was best not to ignore,

I went and put a piece of ice on my tongue,

Hoping I couldn’t lie if my mouth was numb,

I even tried eating a bee to get stung,

However my speech suffered as an outcome,

I altered the language in which I express,

Lest English was that with which my plight depends,

With the use of sign language I found success,

But I couldn’t communicate with my friends,

I guess that all of my efforts were in vain,

I’ll now have to speak words that are genuine,

Endure the consequences and not complain,

Either that or learn to lace my words with spin.
