AUTOBIOGRAPHY (in 50 words, written in the 3rd person, containing one untruth) by Barbara Girardet

The horse bolted: She was born
To loving parents,
In an enchanted land
Of rivers, tigers, Himalayas, monsoons, pet snakes, a gentle ayah.
She sailed the seas to London.
Danced through convent,
Jived through university,
Rocked and rolled through
Teaching, marriage and motherhood.
Heartbreaking sorrows also touched her magical life.
