Stand Up For Verity

Stand Up for Verity

so do not conjure up a tale and claim it’s not the latter.
Though presidents and kings and poets scratching in their dormer
might for their single purposes stray away from the former,
there must be someone willing to call out their acts as ruthless,
for there’s no folly greater than to be led by the truthless.


The prompt words today are fabulist, fierce, accommodate and granite. Here are links:

This time she gave him room to speak.

“Ok, you’re right. I admit that taking you to my Mother’s is a pretty lousy thing to do on our one day a week together but I couldn’t think…
