Just Tell the Forsooth

Truth began to hang out with the wrong crowd.
After so many years of biblical truth,
It has now, sad to say,
Become relative truth,
Or convenient truth,
Or the appearance of truth…
In the neighborhood of truth.
Now, mockingly, we’re told,
We can’t take the truth.
So a clean break…a new term…is needed
To restore the purity of not lying.
And that new truth will be called,
Forsooth.
Do you swear to tell the whole Forsooth
And nothing but the Forsooth.
Forsooth, you’ll see will set you free.
So truth,
Now a withered stalk,
Will blow into etymological history,
As we now live in the Age of Forsooth.
