Fibbing is Fun

Myles writes: This week’s poem is all about fibs, lies, exaggerations and outright whoppers. When I was a child I met another boy on holiday who told me he could throw a cricket ball for over a mile. I considered this for a while, and then decided it was probably untrue. There’s something rather comical about how big a lie some people are prepared to tell.


This poem is told from the point of view of a big liar. I felt it was only right that they should get their comeuppance in the end.
