Default NO MORE LIES (New Year Resolution)


NO MORE LIES
(New Year Resolution)

Come next year,
no more lies
No more fibs
No porky pies.
No more sulks
No more sighs
No untruths
Will I devise.

Look at me
All you guys!
Can't you see
My honest eyes?
Just don't ask
My dress size.
Such a probe
Would be unwise.

My answer would be
No surprise.
Not big, not small
Just lifesize.
Some would call this
telling lies
To wrap the truth
In a disguise.

So from next year
Watch my goodbyes
To telling lies
and porky pies.
From next year
You'll hear new cries.
Instead I'll tell
A COMPROMISE!
