A dear friend is prone to exaggeration - this is dedicated to him - just for fun

I know you never mean to lie,

You just mess with what is true.

When the facts are boring

Make them interesting! - that is you.

That lad you said weighed 20 stone

And stood at 4ft. 4

Was really two foot taller

A weighed 12 stone - no more!

You said the woman up the street

Had children by the score

It made your story funny

But, in fact, she had just four.

That 3 foot elf all dressed in green

You saw dancing in the park?

You did admit that was untrue

You just said it for a laugh.

That day you fell from the ladder

While climbing to the roof,

You said you climbed 400 feet

Now I know that's not the truth!

Then there's that old man who lived near you

When you were very small

The one who dressed in robes of black

And had ears of 2 foot tall!!

The size of that great fish you caught

It weighed nigh on a ton

Six foot long and three foot wide

And your friend? Well he caught none.

I love you very dearly

You're always there and are never late

But there's one small thing that I must say

PLEASE don't exaggerate!!!
