Truth is Not Truth. Or is it?

When fake has become our food

Truth is not truth.
Truth is not truth?
Truth is not truth!
Which truth? The former or the latter?
The “truth” or the truth?
I’m confused.
When is truth not truth?

***

Truth is not truth when it’s a lie.
A falsehood.
Dishonesty.
Fibbing.
An invention.
A misrepresentation.
Double-crossing.
Double-dealing.
Falsifying.
Fiction.
A fabrication.
Make believe.
Perjury.
It’s wrong.
Two-timing.
Fallacious.
Erroneous.
Untrue.
Deceptive.
Delusory.
Guileful.
Deceitful.
A contortion of what is.
Hypocrisy.
Wrong.
Equivocating.
Duplicitous
Mendacious.
Fake.

I beg of you, just serve me the truth; the f*cking truth. The only truth. Give me what is acceptable and pure, right, honest, authentic, real, and sincere. Be frank, faithful, loyal, moral, candid, devoted, and upright. Show integrity. And satisfy me with the constancy of your actions and irrefutability of your words. Please.
It’s really not a big ask, is it?

Sincerely,
