Noah’s Final Word

In the Dverse Lounge tonight, Victoria wants us to tell a lai, (pronounced lay), an old French poetry form that was used to tell tales of adventure and courage using octosyllabic lines.

I can’t tell a lai,
my pages defy,
untruth.

What Webster would say,
Remains yet today,
The truth.

When fakers betray,
Unworthily fray.
Uncouth!
