Half lie

What lies is a tongue ,up and down
In certain way to bring down fruits,
Throwing pebble at ripeness of tree,
In random shot into a reddened sky.

Looking away is amoral kind of a lie
Like the elephant death when spoke
Or mentioned in passing in epic war
Where cousins fight  half light’s end.

The half light is lie constantly spoke,
Blurred loose ends hanging in there
A pretension that tomorrow is hope.
Someone up there speaks a  full lie.

(In the Kurukshetra war a half lie spoken by Yudhistira about the death of an elephant named Aswathdhama leads to the death of an invincible Dronaacharya who lays down arms believing his son by the same name had been killed in the war)
