What is truth?
Everyone’s got a different answer
We should be kind to those who are kind to us
We should shun those who are unhappy, lest they make us unhappy
we should not care about the displaced, the homeless, the sick
We should look after our own
What is truth? said the governor
perplexed by the supposed criminal, the so-called King of the Jews
not waiting for a response, he went to the accusers
Knowing no crime had been committed.
What is truth? ask the scholars
and embark on philosophical musings
moral relativism rearing its head
everyone doing their own thing
What is truth? asks every one of us
and the lamb of God answers
Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, take care of the sick
Love God, and love your neighbour
It’s really quite simple.
