Big Lift Ferry Poem F270

Is a corn of truth –
More difficult to swallow –
Than a grain of truth?

Notes to this poem…

Just wondering something about a couple of very similar English expression (grain of truth, corn of truth), using another English expression (truth is hard to swallow).

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
