STRANGER THAN FICTION

STRANGER THAN FICTION

never had
to go far
could always spin
a good yarn

gossip
and talk
nothin' but
poppycock

what i
unveil
is no
fairytale

take you back
in time
tell things that'll
blow minds

back to
the cradle
when mother
whispered fables

absolutely
scandalous
probably won't
believe this

reveal the
diabolical
about a father
most prodigal

tell you
my story
the hell
and the glory

things i saw
and did
you'll swear
it's a fib

just a lot
of hype
must be
outta spite

been there
and back
gotta record
of track

though it's hard
to prove
it's the absolute
truth

my father's sins
i'll confess
you'll think surely
she does jest

no one left
to collaborate
on what i
elaborate

i'll share the
diamonds and gems
when i expose
the skelotons

you'll say
it's imagination
hogwash
fabrication

say i'm stirring
things up
call me a tempest
in a teacup

doesn't take
a detective
to put it in
perspective

in the end
my friends
you'll see it
really did happen

when they accuse
me of deceit
i'll leave behind
the receipts

they'll be shaking
their heads
long after
i'm dead

they'll say my
life's depiction
was sure
stranger than fiction

An intriguing piece. I enjoyed the read. Nicola is right - this could easily be a song.

Great piece of philosophical poetry
super rhymes and no doubt great truths.
