Embellishing Events - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You have been accused of lieing.
Embellishing events that actually occur.
What statement can you make,
To defend yourself?
And dispute what others have said,
As being totally ridiculous.

'I have also been accused,
Of tap dancing on my neighbor's lawn...
Well after midnight.
And the doing of it they wish to stop.
Since my tap dancing awakens to disturb,
The sleeping of their pet parakeets.'
