Today XVIII

Today,
he started the day
listing his lies and his truths...
 
Nothing complicated or intricate;
two columns.
One for lies, the other for truths...
 
Thought it better to start with the latter.
The obvious, the oft repeated,
the constants he could not deny,
like... Yes, like... Maybe, like...
 
Probing doubts crawled in...
Truths, or poses, pretensions, claims,  
automated responses, statements and spins?
Overburdened and overwhelmed
to the first column he returned...
 
Best to list them in historical order;
lies, from first to last...
Took a few minutes and scanned his life...
Stopped when he lost count...
 
Lies when he knew, lies when he didn't...
Lies to others and himself...
When pushed to a corner, or out in the open...
 
Today,
he calls in sick - truth, or lie -
cooks his favorite meal...
