WHO ARE YOU TO SAY! I wonder — can we agree? Can we all just get along? The world happier would be! Maybe I might/could be wrong! Must I always do as you? Possibly I might be right! I trust my thoughts also true — And I believe white is white! If you so dislike my voice Simply turn and dance away! Agree that all have a choice. Then our world will be okay!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, says she reached into her mystery bag and pulled out a Didactic Poem – What! You say what is that? Didactic Poetry is a form of poetry intended for instruction such as for knowledge or to teach.

What a challenge looking at this “wonky” image; this is what came to my “P” brain looking at the image below. See my verse down under.
I wonder now what YOU would create, – join HERE!
Bottoms Up Does the world seem wonky? If not, why not? When will it end? Or should we Stand together on our heads. A man, a woman, or boy, a girl. At best, we will laugh together. At worst, a headache, ouch! Upside down or bottoms up? The bottom not so good We laugh, trying not to cry! What will tomorrow bring? Remembering upright. A day when we were not Uptight: young girls' dreams Of a picket fence, a knight In shining armor. When little boys were Made of puppy-dog tails; Little girls were sugar and spice The world was oh so nice.
Just a little bit of humor
My Caption to the image above, thank you MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for the inspiration.
Just a little simple poem with no particular form composed quickly while looking at the photo challenge below. A Free Versed Poem.
Our words this week are:
– black and white
– unusual and common
Help my hair is turning gray, I suppose that means I have had many, too many birthdays. The question now is should I go black or white?
Honestly, both have their advantages, unusual as they might be, yet as common as staying gray. Gray or grey, whatever!

Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 25 September 2021
Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 25 September 2021!
The ‘Double Take’ challenge TODAY focuses on the use of homophones. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
nays – votes against
neighs – a horse vocalize
pain – hurts
pane – a single pane glass
My participation is below:
Life today! Don't get too close. Look through a window instead. But then the pane of glass; it shatters; Oh, the pain of hearing! Hearing Yeas, over the nays! Bad over good! Accepted, even wild horses wail their neighs! Society! What happened? Nature in conflict while Disharmony thickens!
mindlovemiserysmenagerie Reminds us It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.
You have a week to write it, enjoy! Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction.
Ta Da! ♫ Your first line is **People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.**
Below see my attempt at offending someone!
**People see what makes sense to them, reality notwithstanding.** It all boils down to lifestyle and Pride. Today especially, with the new normal that is plugged. The "New Normal" defined as:
You’re a racist!
Boy or Girl or to be determined!
Cops are bad; crooks are good!
Riots/looters are peaceful!
Processions/A March are terror!
Liberal voice loud
Any other New Normals to report — leave in the comments.
My challenge to you!
A Photo Challenge #359
Can’t find my thinking cap! Don’t say it, I know what you’re thinking!
Tale Weaver – #299 – Over The Top – October 29th I took the challenge anyway!
OVER THE TOP
Looking way Over the top
Stooping under the bottom
Licking a sweet lollipop
Enjoying the cool Autumn
Having indeed a great day
After sleeping sound all night
Cut last blooms for a bouquet
Thinking of what now to write
Now reaching for my laptop
Designing away something —
Anything … Over the top
Over on my sidebar there is a quote that inspired me today. Together with a prompt word SWITCH not to mention Mindlovemiserysmenagerie below.
“Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”
First time for me with the explanation below through the inspiration of Mindlovemiserysmenagerie Poetry known as Vers Beacoup.
The Vers Beaucoup, a poem created by Curt Mongold, is French for “many rhymes.” Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of:
My creative verse below rhyming scheme as above with three stanza of three groups
If you get the ITCH to SWITCH, that’s RICH
Don’t DITCH! WOW, do it NOW by golly
Take that VOW! Plan AHEAD, use your HEAD
Before your DEAD! WRITE what’s RIGHT!
Don’t FRIGHT; we UNITE for the FIGHT
Be a KNIGHT! READ now let’s LEAD —
WEED out evil! Pull the PLUG rid that THUG
So very SMUG! GAIN hope to DRAIN!
It’s DEEP don’t fall ASLEEP, WEEP for
The SHEEP! An ARRAY of truth we PRAY
TODAY. To set us FREE we can all AGREE
With GLEE! Soon to sing the LATE Deep STATE!
OPPOSITES ATTRACT This challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. Our words this week are:
– ascend and descend
– hope and despair
My post in the form of a Haibun with Haiku
God indeed works in mysterious ways. Take life as an example. There are those people who are their best when they are at their lowest; in other words, they seem to sink or descend to the lowest point before rising to ascend to great heights. That is the way of life, and even God Himself fell three times when He carried His Cross before He rose. He never despaired, but hoped for our salvation.
All called to follow
Up down, to and fro we go
Heaven is our goal
What a challenge! I tried! See below

why are we here
to drink a beer
to add some cheer
a bad omen
seek a good friend
but learn to bend
stretch to the end
write a poem
keep it simple
see the steeple
you’re almost home
Post Short Fiction inspired by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Friday!
The station reminded her of some great creature, its constant machine whir breathing around her as she worked herself through the crowded people all around her. This was the first time she visited the train station. Where was everyone going, she wondered? So many people in one place were going this way and that way. The noise from the trains was indeed an enormous creature, its constant machine; the engine was huffing and puffing.
This building is the local train station, and FINALLY I am one of those anxious people strolling around looking for my place to board one of those noisy, enormous machines trusting it to bring me to my destination.
My adventure about to begin, I can only hope I will find the happiness and peace of soul when I reach the end of my journey.
INSPIRATION FROM THE Sunday Writing Prompt —
Accepting their challenge from this quote from Atticus; –> “We just want the world to love the little monster that we are.” Atticus a pseudonym for an anonymous poet, writer, and artist.
The prompt reminds me of another quote from the Bible: The above quote from Attius to this quote below is my post today, Sunday, December 22, 2019.
Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God? Whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.
Writing Prompt “Wacky and Weird”
No not my family, friends, but, perhaps aliens or some local wildlife, certainly Wacky and Weird.
