The Small Lie (Prompt: Small)


Restraining a giggle
at the moment of truth,
she told me
“you’re not small,”
and after that
I never trusted
anything she said
ever again.

(In the Soupy Sales Format: 25 words or less.)

  4. This made me smile!!!

    (Also, thank you for the link to "This House is Empty Now" over at my site. I enjoyed listening to it, and yes...it is quite similar to my poem, though I had never heard / heard of the song before.)

    Omg. After my most recent poem, to come here and see this one is, um, interesting! Very Napoleonic!

    We lie, though, it's true. Ask us what's in the soup and well say leeks when it's eels.

    Let her giggle. Ask her to repeat her answer because the combination of her skin dandruff and nose shine from her terminal case of combination skin stunned you into momentary hysterical deafness. Teh velvet gloves, i haz dem!

    1. I call him Napoleon because he's short, has delusions of grandeur, and wanted to rule the world. BTW, this wasn't any one woman, but rather a composite. To paraphrase LD on Curb "he didn't have a small penis, she had a huge vagina."
