Of late I've learnt how to tell a lie,
Utter lie -
Whenever it is,
However it is,
Whatever it is.

To tell a lie
Before somebody is,
Now, for me,
Like bread and butter.

Only to have
A crust of bread
And
A little bit of butter.

Dedicated to my friend "Srijon Paul"

to live on
Straight to the heart. Like a punch in the face. Very honest, and very straightforward.
Great one!!

little white lie
"to tell a lie before somebody is". I read that line 100 times. Im not sure I'm taking it the same way as you are, but thats the beauty that each person can walk away with something diff.
Excellent poem!
