Day Sixteen




This prompt is from Daisy Fried, and the basic idea is to write a ten-line poem in which each line is a lie. Your lies could be silly, complicated, tricky, or obvious. 

I love this prompt (no lie!)



I do not have a daughter, I do not have a son

I wander bitterly through life like I’m the only one

I dislike sunshine on my face and flowers in my garden

I hate people and my goal is making their hearts harden

I’ve never loved an animal or taken any chances

I prefer to sit and glare while everyone else dances

I hate my friends, I hate my job, I hate the ocean’s waving

I believe I should give in to each unhealthy craving

I despise enlightenment and kindness makes me sick

And I believe true love is just a mirrored magic trick
