What’s Truth Anyway?


Trees that are purple, a sky that’s green

Could you believe in things that are only dreamt but never seen?

There are lies that are little, lies that are big.

Lies that define the style of life that we live.

Rats the size of mountains, elephants that fly.

Does any politician tell the truth or do they all always lie?

Are you pragmatic, pulling a face and adding a sigh?

Or are you a realist and hide behind that alibi?

Idealism, now there is a word!

A state of mind to live in, but perfection never heard!

Do you recognise the truth but hide from it and say,

“I’ve got no time for honesty, I’m floating on a cloud all day?”

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
