I dreamt for a time
got up after some time
found nothing in rhyme
Truth is bitter and sour.
Speaking it needs power.
Talking straight is never
a habit in the cover
demanding sincerity ever
Lies come in a clamour
Facilitating them with glamour
has become a passionate amour
bringing with it an exercise of grammar
elaborating with feign demeanour
Truth is slow and is a struggle
With an initial setback and bungle
it falters in every possible juggle
then gets ahead deliberately in a snuggle
never pushing in a through a smuggle.
Lies are quick and shining
coming in tens and hundreds in teasing
as one lie leads to another in piling
setting the stage for rigging
culminating in an illicit trafficking.
With that lies being an easy format
men chose to go by that stat
while truth is no mean doormat
fighting a very difficult combat.
As such the eventual lies live short
with ostentation and glory bought
but with truth being caught
by jugglery and manipulation of sort
has a life long-standing above all thoughts.
The choice is classic
looking very chic
with the outer frame not thick
while the inner look is sleek
grand and great it seems
lively and cheerful it beams
shining and twinkling it gleams
as it expressed a poetic seam
an artist who has to be honoured.
Crosswords take the mind off
letting in a concentration in a laugh
where the focus is on solving
as the puzzle goes on prolonging
pushing one to resolve fast
have to possess patience to last
accomplishing the task on time
requires great skill and rhyme
which is not found in many
with only a few having any
love and desire to indulge
as the work needs a grudge
and grit to win over straight.
Life being a crossword
with happenings wayward
the competition being heavy
and the challenges in levy
few walk out with bowed head
while the rest camouflage instead
posing they have achieved great
