This poem was written for a contest -
the first letter of each line must spell
out a word or a phrase.

Tall Tales
by Xander Riley

Before you brag 'bout your latest conquest,
Understand that you're not always the best.
Listen to what you are going to say,
Let your humility stand in the way.
Say what you want to, but keep it subdued.
Heaven will not see the totally rude.
If you persist without having a clue,
This poem spells out my response to you.
