Some might call it a fabrication
While others might call it a fib
And some will call it down right dishonest
But, happily with their soul they can live.
Some might call it an untruth
While others will call it a deception
Some will nod their heads and walk away
And they won't make any exception.
I have heard it called misinforming
And also heard it called a falsification
But, then those words were so very kindly used
To protect someone else's reputation.
I have also heard it to be misleading
And also to be used in perjury
Sometimes they are used in a sophisticated way
But, with that word they rush and hurry.
I know that is nothing, but a falsehood
And the meaning and end effect you can't deny
The actions of the word can be called anything at all
But, to me a lie, is nothing but a lie.
