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

Nice poem. Love the alliteration in the title. Fun!
I like this, theres a good rhythm going which makes for very catchy poetry
Thank you sir! Glad you stopped by!
So true. No drama, no interest. 🙂
Love the title!
Titter sounded better than Telling.. smiles
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!
See my response to Now a Burden…
