Triku, my name for three connected Haikus
Lies and deceit can destroy people in very cruel ways

Descending Deceit (Triku)

Once told, a lie lives
Death and destruction it gives
No matter what is

Perception is all
Be it truth or be it false
Truth is sadly lost

Untrue stories told
Like cruel, choking vines, take hold
To stop justice cold.

Unfortunately Phyllis, we live in a world that thrives on lies these days...but I believe that rather than try to fight such rumours, best let the truth rise naturally, as it always does.

It all comes out in the wash...leaving those who believed everythng they hear or read, with egg on their face!lol as we say in blighty.

I am the worlds worst lied about!lol Honestly, I swear its true!lol

We have to learn to read between the has taken me half a century, but I think I am getting the knack!lol

Smiling at you...interesting arrangement name....You can triku as hard as you like, they will still believe whatever is convenient to believe.
