On the Necessity of Lying

Published August 10, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Good cadence, and true!

Intellectual Shaman

Look, I can’t stand the fakers!

When my boss tells me, her husband is a hunk

and he’s 50 pounds over-weight

with mousey hair, and round glasses

she’s trying to convince herself, and everybody else

but it doesn’t work

if she believed, I would forgive her

but she only half-believes

it’s the right thing, for a wife to say

but nobody believes

it’s to her credit, and not his

to say the lies with conviction

their friends believe they have something special

because love is insane

it defies the truth

Everybody thinks, her husband is so lucky to have her

and that’s the point

it sounds like a line

she learned in a book

for a successful marriage

“a good wife builds-up her husband to others”

I wish we didn’t need

to lie to ourselves

I do it,

and everybody else does it

because, we can’t look in the mirror
