Poems to share

Three Lies and One Truth about the Moon

1. The moon only exists at night, and occasionally during the day, in summer

2. No-one has ever landed on the moon, and the Russian President knows this but promised his mum he wouldn’t say anything

3. The moon is a hollow spaceship inhabited by nazi rabbits that turn men into werewolves

4. If my heart was as big as the moon I couldn’t love you more
