Zero Tolerance For Misinformation

I could have kept mum just like the rest,
And allowed the liars to win the 'contest'.
They called it a 'war'; stooped low & went far.
They said- 'Everything is fair in love & war'.
I could have used my time for my personal gain,
Not 'waste' my resources & go through pain...

But, I decided I should stand up for my state.
The truth has to be unveiled even though it's late.
Whenever there is misinformation & untruth reigns,
The truth should be unshackled from its chains.
Why for adopting responsibilities warriors aren't more?
Why no one from this camp shared my views before?

I understand I would have had more power in my hand,
Had I been born at least a century ago in my same land.
The moment I would have learned about their 'invention',
I'd have expressed my zero tolerance for misinformation.
Wrong information would never have found its way,
I would have promptly nipped the lie in the bud right away!

It's said- 'Everything happens for a reason' here.
'Everything happens for one's own good' & cheer.
I am glad I acted selflessly & honestly & have no regret,
I passionately did my very best & have no reason to fret...
Pointless 'could have', 'should have', 'would have' debate!
'Actions speak louder than words'; action is great.
