Another Canticle For Stories

it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
To some the truth is the truth
And a story is something else
They forget a lesson of youth
The lesson faerie and elf;
A tale is not falsehood unless
It tells a truth we despise
Though of course we confess
Some tales are naught but lies
But truth hides itself from the crowd
And a true fable is never allowed
But in a word both strange and wise
Though silent, it is said out loud.
