Titter Tattered Tall Tales

Pass on the lore of yesteryear
Of the follies loved near and dear
Tales intriguing and sublime
Capturing men who did the crime

All the stories should ring the truth
Not so much as to require proof
If they seem too good to be true
They’ll lose their interest in you

  4. I like “titter” too. And I like your poem about telling tattered tales. Reminded me of those twongue twisters… Excuse me–my tongue got twisted!
