Bri's Shorter P-H " About Me ".....[ Don't Believe What I Said About Poem Comments! ! ; Short; True ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

On my page where my photo shows orange, not blue,
one part of my "About me" just doesn't "ring true".
Perhaps it once was true, but I don't remember why!
The 'bit' disallowing poem comments, I now call a lie! !

Though comments aren't sought and 'never' asked for by me,
you are most welcome to leave a comment of any sort for free.
I know I 'lie' a bit sometimes, in poems & in messages for sure,
but mostly what I write is harmless, &, if not, I'll offer a free cure.


"ring true"[verb phrase]: "To seem to be correct, or plausible."

"bend the truth"[verb phrase]: "to say something that is not true or that misleads people but that is usually not regarded as a serious or harmful lie"

Topic(s) of this poem: lies, truth

Poet's Notes about The Poem

yesterday i reread the shorter of TWO "About me"s which i had/have on PH. I have now requested*** PH to delete it; i don't see a way for ME to delete or edit it, unlike the much longer "About me" which is to be found on my PH page showing me in a BLUE shirt, not orange jacket, ....and which can be edited by me.

*** i don't expect PH to take action as requested, but, hey! , the site IS FREE! ! !

THANKS PoemHunter for all you offer us poetic peasants.

    Ha ha! ! !

    i just submitted and read again what i submitted, finding an 'error'. Before i finished editing, before submitting, i must have used the phrase " bend the truth" and affixed, after the poem, the definition for " bend the truth" . But you won't find that phrase in the finished poem. Ho ho!
