Poets' Lies, a poem

doggerel of the day...

Poets’ Lies

Never trust a poet —
he’ll only tell you lies
and pretty bits of nonsense,
pretending to be wise.

The words have all been crafted
to bring tears to your eyes,
he’ll beguile your hearts,
he’ll seek to hear your sighs.

But, in time, he knows
whatever words he tries,
you’ll turn the page and read
some other poet’s lies.
