A Most Truthful Poem
By Donna M. Monnig
There’s gold at the end of the rainbow,
The giant leprechaun told me so.
He said the Easter Bunny put it there –
Had to hide it from the clown at the fair –
The clown was a cop; not many know.
The gold was stolen by a sneaky hobo!
The Easter Bunny wanted the golden egg,
But the goose refused even though he begged.
Mother Goose hired the clown to protect the gold,
And in this poem not one lie has been told.

Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge was to write a ten line poem in which every line was a lie.
