A Tall Tale
To the heavens they would rise
my yarns, excuses, alibis.
Such tall tales I could tell
and all constructed very well
I built them grand and I kept them neat
enjoying life in the penthouse suite
so imagine my surprise
when I tripped on one small lie
and over the edge I tumbled
flailing past my fabled glories
I've fallen now - 100 stories!
I think at that, a reader laughed
and gave me a nice updraft!
I need another, very fast!
the distance to the truth now halved!
I sense a smile.. and there - a grin! ...
a winter pond, so my love asks
my skating skills up to the task?
just frozen water, so I laugh
sheeted ice, subservient glass
paid tuition at Nature's college
a hard lesson to you I pass
truth IS a pain in the ass
