Everything I tell you is a lie
Except what I’ve just said – that’s gospel truth.
You should believe me, though I can produce no proof –
I cannot lie and look you in the eye.
You should trust me – I’ve an honest face.
I’d never fool you just to get my way.
If I should bend the facts, it’s all in play.
I never said those things in the first place.
If I should say so, you could walk through fire –
I’ll be offended if you call me liar.
Note: the prompt was to write a 10 line poem in which each line is a lie.This wasn’t written in my own voice – honestly!
