I must say I am a terrible liar,
When I am hiding something it’s like surrounded by barbed wire,
I blurt out at the slightest provocation,
In fact many times without any investigation,

Like this morning I fell into the trap,
An innocent question made me snap,
I babbled what I was supposed to hide,
I let out what I had brushed aside,

Now I am in deep trouble,
Being snubbed for bursting the bubble,
I wish I had just kept quiet,
I could have easily averted the disquiet,

I must learn not to be a lamb,
I must learn to sometimes ham,
But for now the deed’s been done,
I’ve been caught and have come undone
