Oh Ken, as always you deliver the most fascinating writes with a lot of food for thought. It's true though, if you can't be truthful what can you be. You need to be able to look at yourself in the mirror. Well done-
Thanks Mel, remember in the Bible that Rah-ab the Harlot hid the Israeli spies and lied to protect them, but her Faith saved her from her sins. As spoken, some men's sins are self-evident but others follow after, in the Judgment of the wicked. I wish I could say that I never lied but that would be a lie.
Well said Ken. You've successfully and colourfully captured so many visuals and slipped in some rhymes too. I love the way you pack so much into your poems. It always makes such a delightful read. Milly x
Thanks Milly, I like to include in my poems true life experiences that people can relate to. I remember lying to my Mom to avoid a beating, fear is a motivator for sure. My Dad worked nights so discipline was left to Mom, a slap across the legs with a strap was greatly feared but I never received a punishment I didn't deserve! When our Son was a grown man I apologized for being too strict and not being a good Dad but he interrupted me by saying; No, you were the perfect Dad, and when you punished me and I cried, you cried too.
after a double malakey please do not drive. The legal limit is 0.00.tell your stury to the judge who specializes in malarkey. My girlfriend does the swallowing in our relationship.When I lie I consider it verbal creative writing.. Good job. One of my favorites
