“The Storyteller”

I learned my first façade
From Scheherazade
Who was inspired by
The caliph, the king:
“Tell a tale or die.”
Well, with so much to lose,
How can one refuse
To tell tales about everything?

Later, when they’re older,
I imagine her bolder,
And always with a steady reply.
To his, “Where have you been?”
She’d say, “Shopping again.”
It was he who taught her to lie.
