Post with Poetry

I got the idea for this poem the other night thinking about how dishonest people can be. One thing I can't stand is when people try to sugar coat things for me or blatantly lie to my face. I'm afraid that this may have happened to me recently. 

The truth is, I would much rather take a hard hit to the gut than for someone to not tell me the full truth and nothing but the truth. When you don't tell the truth, you leave people with questions, and confusion. You shouldn't leave people wondering about things that are important. It causes much more prolonged pain.

Sure, you should try to be as nice about it as possible, but be HONEST. It doesn't matter if it's a half-truth or a white lie; a lie is a lie, and it's still wrong. 

Little Sweet Shoppe of Lies

Welcome to the sweet shoppe
Take your pick of treats 
Sugar-coated goodness 
Is what we sell to you 

Here’s some divinity
Small and white and sweet
It melts right on your tongue
Just like our words will do

Look now at the cheesecake
You’ll get just one piece
But just not the whole thing
You’ll get sick, you will too!

Have yourself some chocolate
Dark and rich, a treat
Eat as much as you want
You won’t look like a fool.

We’ll give you what you want
We just can’t be beat
We’ll sugar coat it all
And you can keep your cool
