Playing With Words


You can’t stand while sitting
Nor sit while you’re standing
But you can lie if you choose
whether with or without lying

In fact lying is so versatile
You can lie while standing
Sitting or walking as well

And sitting too is a little bit flexible
For even though you can’t stand sitting
you can still enjoy sitting at will

So if you’re ever accused of lying
You can change your position
Saying “I wasn’t REALLY lying …”
I think it’s called playing with words

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
