Johny, Johny, Yes, Papa.
Eating sugar? No, Papa.
Telling lies? No, Papa.
Open your mouth, hahaha!!
This tiny childhood nursery rhyme is still a lesson/reminder to few adults. What it teaches is; “You aren’t allowed to lie after committing a mess, no matter you are little Johny or whatever your age”. We humans are made to do amazing new mistakes & learn from it, not to repeat it. Lie didn’t work with Johny in this rhyme when his dad found sugar in his mouth. The best thing about a lie/liar is; it’s just predictable. Any moment you want to show up with a headstrong attitude towards life like a winner, first show up with your side of TRUTH.

The message of this rhyme has always left me baffled. It seemed to me like it’s advocating that small lies are okay.
I enjoyed your interpretation.
I understand your point about people advocating/undermining small lies. Lie is a lie, small or bigger doesn’t matter actually. Thanks for enjoying the post.🤗🤗
I agree too. Lie is a lie.
It’s a pleasure reading your posts, short and sweet! 🙂
Thanks for your words. Hope to keep my posts short & sweet always.🤗🤗
