a poem that tells a lie. I think you could have a poem that’s all lies (that could be very funny — full of things like “the sun is the size of a nickel”) or a poem that steadily builds to telling one big whopper.

As I stroll in the Street
I had an encounter with the red witch
Her eyes were dark blue
She hummed the rhyme ‘eyes are blue’
I asked her name
She replied ‘no-name’
I asked from where she came?
She told a ‘flying plane’

I was flabbergasted
She growled and howled
And displayed her colorful teeth
I was observant and alert
While she was ready to plunge
I ran and I panted
But she was not deterred or daunted
Everything seemed so haunted

Suddenly, in front of me
A UFO landed
Oh God! I was stranded
The gates of UFO collapsed
A coven of witches emerged

I stood still, gaping in horror
They raised a furor
Over who would be lucky enough
To devour me!
And along came a huge ant
Singing merrily a soothing chant
While the witches roared
The ant crawled dragging a maul

Witches were bewildered
In the commotion I was thrilled
Ant spoke to the Witches
In a language alien to me
Soon the witches surrendered
I was befuddled
And they grinned
Displaying their colorful teeth;
Waved me Goodbye
With their twisted arms,
And flew back in their UFO

While the ant continued
Onwards on the street
I was wondering
If, I should thank it
But soon it was out of sight
I was perplexed beyond sanity
Was it a dream, reality or a myth?

  4. Loved this tale of horror. A unique composition indeed. Magic, UFO, ants entwined in a wonderfully unique tale. The element of curiosity was there with me throughout the poem holding me tight in its thrilling catch hold.
