I'm in an unsettled disagreement about this Poem.
Specifically the line...
One of us interprets this to mean that if a person is lying about you, that putting forth the effort to respond to every lie is a waste of time. That you should simply rise above it and not allow them to sap your time and effort by responding.Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
The other thinks it simply means that you shouldn't lie back to them.
For the sake of objectivity, I won't say which I believe is the proper interpretation, if eithor of them are.
Could anyone please weigh in on this.
