I Challenge You To…

This week’s challenge is to write a story, limerick or poem on the subject of:

Lies

Last week’s challenge was to write about cake. You sent in some great pieces. Here are a few:

First up is the brilliant Keith Channing:

When my daughter came home with her beau
He asked, “Have you any gâteau?”
I said, “We ain’t posh
And we don’t have much dosh.
You could even say we knead the dough.”

Here are two from the talented Kevin:

There was a young man called Blake
Who was extremely fond of cake.
He went out on a date
With a girl named Kate,
Who went and ate all the cake!

There was a young lady named Leigh
Who invited me round for tea.
We ate lots of cake
But when I tried to partake
She kicked me out at three!

Please visit byindiablue‘s website for their piece on cake:

  1. The greatest of sins is mendacity,
    Far better to stick to veracity.
    But don’t feign surprise
    If you catch me in lies;
    I mean well, but lack the capacity.

  2. To be sucked in
    you cross a line
    left best a fool
    at worst ignored
    let conscience air
    not skewed desire
    step back save face
    no mirror lies

  3. Many thanks for running this challenge and for publishing my limericks about cake. Below is my contribution to this week’s challenge on the subject of lies:

    A secret fire.
    Their desire
    Must
    Out
    In lust.

    They can not shout
    About
    Their passion, for Pretty Eyes
    Is another guys
    Special one.

    Truth has gone
    A-walking.
    And Soon people will be talking
    About Pretty Eyes’s
    And her lies

  4. Reblogged this on newauthoronline and commented:
    Ester Chilton has been kind enough to reproduce several of my limericks in the below post.
    I particularly enjoyed Keith Channing’s limerick on the subject of lies (which can be found below).
