A Double Fib
14Jun2017

Poem
4


A
man
once admitted
You were right,
and I was wrong. Then
vowed he’d kill if I shared with anyone.
He was big enough to acknowledge his mistake,
but too small to accept
that, in fact,
he erred
in
fact.

    Yes, to all of this. Truth in so few words–nicely done.

  3. Kathleen Gregg says:

    You are a master of fibs!! And I’m not fibbing.

  4. Hmm, almost political in today’s climate.
    But from Mary it is mostly just honest, I said it and I’m glad, good writing.
