A tiny
fib: that’s all it
was. So small,
I never thought
to fear that
it might damn those
who believed it was pure truth.
This was for *simplypoetry's June form prompt. We were to write a Whitney. This is a poem with exactly seven lines, and a syllable pattern of 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7. It's as simple as that!

...only not so simple. Since it's so very short, it took a lot of control to make the lines fit!

BTW, this is also a very very VERY belated prize poem for =BreedStock who requested "Downfall of the world from a white lie." I know I was rather vague with the prompt.. but I kinda like it that way frankly!

I'm not a poet, so I think I'd be beating my head against the wall in no time...
