2016 On Stories by Matthew Newbold

Second Place winner in Poetry Wins $50

"This story is true" says the Teller of Tales

"A truth against which reality pales

Of king and queens and mystic rings

Of starships and blasters and impossible things

Where heroes always win

Against evil and against sin

Where love never dies

And where almost no one lies

Some will scoff at what I say

Too tired to do anything but wallow in a world that's a touch too wicked, a touch too grey

But I see you hold these words in your heart-as you do!

For to believe such a tale is to strive to make it true."
