What Was That You Said?

I can’t remember any of them.
All the words of manipulation
and exaggeration
that you used to try and inflate
your already over-sized ego
are dead and gone the way
of the Dodo. They’re dust,
extinct, no amount of
resuscitation could bring them back.

Linda Lee Lyberg is hosting the Quadrille prompt over at dVerse Poets today. Join us if you can!

  1. That sounds like a day of liberation when one no longer needs “words of manipulation
    and exaggeration”.
