"Poetry is lying"       [boomerang]

Poetry is lying pure & simple
the one who lies persuasively is best
through poetry my darling has a dimple
forever on her cheek while in her breast
one finds the fondest lilies   have you guessed?
her lips are always ruby! ne'er a pimple
could mar her countenance   my case I rest
that poetry is lying pure & simple


[This admittedly perverse pleasantry was dashed off by way of reply to a short poem entitled "The poet's refusal to be false"]
