Find a headline that intrigues you, and turn it into a poem. You've got a whole leisurely Saturday to do it.
I hear the commenting section is buggy. If you can't use it, e it to me on the contact link or via my facebook page and I'll post it for you. Make sure to let me know it's ok to post it.
Boog pre-empted us during haiku day by shear serendipity. He's always been ahead of the curve.
The bishop busted
Six hundred naughty pix and
A handheld device
Mine's old, from a Gazette Times Headline:
It starts out innocently enough.
The llama had been seeking the field mint
It knew grew sweetly on the south hillside,
The mint had been seeking a bit of shade there,
Near the edge where the forest bled into the
Pasture. The cougar had been seeking deer,
Having no geographic or recent genetic reason,
Before such animals bled from one land to another,
To want for the taste of llama. The trapper
Was after nutria, another import wreaking havoc.
But a job’s a job, and the llama owner, taking all
Of this much too personally, is after revenge.
We are all seeking one thing or another. We have
Lost track of our edges, we want to pretend we can
Move outside where we belong, and no one will
Notice; nothing will end up bleeding. This is the
Misfortune of poorly directed hungers.
