Why Do We Lie?
Breath to power,
Into the air.
Space for love,
Underneath the sun.
And, Oh yeah,
Sometimes it’s just plain fun.

This is posted for Lillian’s Quadrille Monday for dVerse. A quadrille is simply a poem of 44 words, (not including the title) that also contains a specified prompt word. Lillian instructs us to use a form of the word “spoil.” Join us on the dVerse trail to get all the Thanksgiving poetry food before it… well, you know… becomes less than fresh. Here is the link:
If you would like an example of what Dorothy Parker would really do, check out the following link, she is a much better Dorothy Parker than I am, she always makes me SMILE!
