Chicken Little Liar

Oh, how sweet the sound
Of your honey soaked voice
Regurgitating promises
Only fit to mend a broken heart

All the while hiding
Canary colored feathers
Beneath a feaux persona
For your own disgraceful pleasure

Secret after secret revealed
The lemon around your eyes
You talked the talk
Until the talk exposed your lies

Chicken little
Your sky is falling
Better run and hide
I don't think I've ever seen
A brighter shade of yellow
Then what illuminated
From your backside

You done slapped the yellow right off their backside! I can appreciate the slapping technique and the total knock-out power here. Nothing to crit. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Sure was a bright yellow!! Thank you for your high praise. :)

RoseBlack I love the boldness and honesty in your poem. The following lines were my favourite:

Chicken little
Your sky is falling
Better run and hide
I don't think I've ever seen
A brighter shade of yellow
Then what illuminated
From your backside

"Keep glowing even if no one can see your light.
For among the hidden stars on the darkest night
Someone will look up and behold
The flickering hope; words untold;
Strength and Honour my Warriors! "

For your input and for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed.
