Once you tell a lie, you may need to keep on telling lies
The Lie That Binds
by Patty Palmer
Write a Kyrielle writing prompt entry
A kyrielle is made of quatrains that rhyme. Each stanza (that is a quatrain) has a line that repeats, so a line from a previous stanza. That line usually (but does not necessarily have to) be the last line in the stanza. Each line in the poem has eight syllables. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. Usually there are three or more stanzas. Any type of rhyme scheme can be used. More information and an example.
When you tell a lie, it seems you'll need to tell another lie to cover the first lie. It can snowball out of hand and you end up telling another lie and another lie. After a while, it gets hard to remember what you've said so far and you start getting confused yourself. Better to tell the truth in the first place and save yourself right from the beginning.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
