Prompt: Write a poem in which you incorporate two outlandish lies. These “lies” can be untruths about you (the poet) or they can be historical or contemporary. For example: “The South won the Civil War.”
The squirrels we see in park and yard
Seem hardly worth remote regard.
Fuzzy, cute and scatterbrained
They keep a canine entertained.
But in the trees they’ve hatched a plot
To vanquish us without a shot.
And so beware the evil squirrels
Because they plan to rule the world.
