Is it ok to lie for the common good?
If you think it is it must be understood,
That one simple lie will lead to many others
In order that the first lie must be kept undercover,
Whereas if you chose not to lie at all
There would be no need to cover up thing no how big or small,
A lie is a lie and honesty is best
Unless that honesty may cause grave offence,
Then just don’t answer or avoid the topic
But don’t try to be kind by lying because that’s so toxic and has no defence.
