Theme: Lie

Wooden Lies

Unless I am Pinocchio
A lie that hurts others is calumny
And subject to litigation.
A lie that hurts me is delusion
And the subject of poetry
And I needn’t ask Geppetto.
A lie that does not hurt me or another
Qualifies to be fiction
Even wooden lies have a tendency to grow.
