1/24

Prompt 60: Write about the biggest lie you ever told.

Liar Liar Bum on Fire

How do I confess,
The lies I have told?
Which should I address,
Dare I be so bold?
 
The white lies,
I have told my share,
It will come as no surprise
Total truth I can not bare.
 
But what is the biggest,
The badest of them all?
My fourth grade spelling test?
The unanswered call?
 
Maybe it was the time
They asked how I was
I said just fine,
Isn’t that what everyone does?

  1. It’s hard to be honest about lies, which isn’t counter intuitive. We lie for a reason… admitting it has to be difficult. I like the last two lines of the final stanza. It is proper etiquette to not complain, I ‘spose.

    Enjoyed,
