30-Day Poetry: 16

Day 16—Respond to the poem you posted yesterday with a poem of your own.

Tell all the truth, but tell it slant

Who was it who said, “I cannot tell a lie”?
And would he have ever known Emily?
             (No.)
Would he have benefited from the advice she gave
instead of simply saying he’d done it
with his little hatchet?
