Here’s a Secret. You are NOT That Great.

Your lies are something quite grand.

Making you the best in all the land.

But in reality

it shows insanity.

Because you’re not all that and you don’t understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Writing 201’s Day 4 Assignment:

Word prompt, imperfect.

Poetic form, limerick.

Poetic device, enjambment.

My use of imperfect in this liar limerick is more implied than used, so hopefully that is OK. Enjambment was something I had to really read on to understand, but I think the third and fourth lines meet that requirement.

What do you think? Does this fit the liars and big talkers in your life you know? It fits tons of people I have met over the years.
