Grand Elision

If truth be told
(As well it ought)
Don’t laud as gold
That which is not

Fall not in love
With every fact
However: Glove
Thy truth with tact

One need not mention
Others’ faults
When mere abstention
Discord halts

When words wound, please
Ensheath your sword
Integrity’s
Its own reward

Remember well
This sage advice:
As truth you tell
Please, too, be nice
