A Persian Lesson – 5

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:
How are you?

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:
What is God?

If you think that Truth can be known
From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean
Can pass through that tiny opening
Called the mouth,

O someone should start laughing!

Someone should start wildly Laughing–
Now!

*

– Hafiz
