Lies and Truths

“How dreadful knowledge of the truth can be
When there’s no help in truth.”

– fr. Oedipus Rex, Sophocles

LIES AND TRUTHS
(Lie or truth, tell it straight.)

lies are what they are
only if
truths are what they are not.

(between
lie and truth
is belief.

between
fact and fiction
is opinion.

between
belief and opinion
is religion.

between
religion and belief
is conviction.)

– deed
is between
creed and need.
