How do you regard poetry as a storytelling medium?


Currently, we're in debate about fiction being a lie, or a generous medium to relate life-truths. PDXKaraokeGuy says "lie" in his Hub "What Is Creative Non-Fiction?" I say truth-be-told in fiction as no where else in my Hub "The Amazing Truth About Fiction". What is poetry?

    @aviannovice...How about the "lie" versus "life-truths" debate? Which compartment does poetry fall into for you?
