Insincere Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“I love when you buy me cute ties.”
“That petite fits you fine — it’s your size.”
“Your acting is great.”
“Your cooking’s first rate.”
Ah, the charm of those little white lies.

(Inspired by Jingle Poetry’s deception and misrepresentation prompt.)

UPDATE: I just found out that April 30 is National Honesty Day. It’s celebrated by politicians … just about nowhere.
