Poetry Thursday - They Lie


These shoes said they'd never give me blisters.

My backpack swears there's a working pen in here somewhere.

This paper plate claims to be made from 100% recycled paper.

The phone's blinking light refers to a message that requires no action on my part.

The carpet promises to hide any stain.

The missing shirt button is plotting a prodigal return.

And the calendar proclaims the glory that is Friday.

(For more lies, check out Poetry Thursday.)
