Lies, lies and more lies

mud.jpgFor today's poetry warm up you have permission to lie :-) You can make each line a different lie, or every line about the same lie.

Here's an example from Kenneth Koch's class:
I am grass as green as can be.
I am in a tree on a leaf.
I am in New York on a flying blueberry.
Mud is pretty.
Rain is ugly.
