One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Fireblossom Joins A Convent

Okay, so I lied. And that's what I want you to do. That's right...

Bullshit me!

Write a poem that does NOT reflect your true feelings. Write a new poem for this challenge, and channel your inner opposite. Then sign the linky even though there's no way I'm going to visit any of you. Aw, there I go again. I promise to visit each and every one!

Trust me, Toads.

Nope Difficult

I never said Fireblossom Friday would be easy, Jerly. Buck up!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Hmmm.... Reminds me of my homemade syllogism:

Poets lie.
I'm a poet.
Don't believe a word I say.

Ella said...

You are so lying ;D
ooh, channel my flip flop twin...
and then convince everyone its not me...difficult, but intriguing!

Helen said...

Kind of a no-brainer for me ...

Daydreamertoo said...

Lies, all lies. Great prompt.

Kerry O'Connor said...

I don't think mine was exactly what you wanted but it's what you got ;)

Fireblossom said...

oOoo...Head Toad says "Lump it or leave it, Shay!" I see how it is around here! ;-)

hedgewitch said...

I don't think it sounds difficult(but then I don't think Kerry's mini-challenges *sound* difficult either--then I do them and lose more hair.) I am off the writing thing till after the election but if anything boils up I will post back and mention this creative and very non-run-of-the-mill prompt, Shay.

I thought this would be impossible, but I found a way. I have been told not to deconstruct a postmodernist, but I am shameless. I hope that you like it, Fireblossom.

Ella said...

OMG....my inner bitch is free! Thank you Miss Nun i fied ;D
I thought this would be hard, but it was so freaking fun...
Thanks FB~ @>----------

Mama Zen said...

I'm sorry . . . I'm stuck on the thought of you in a convent!

Isadora Gruye said...

fun fun fun fun fun....I accept, let me digest and regurgitate.

Isadora Gruye said...

LMFAO at the idea of Ms Fireblossom joining a convent!!!!

FABulous prompt! {and no, i'm not lying...}

Susie Clevenger said...

Oh what fun...to be encouraged to lie and by a nun no less. :)

Talking of bare-faced, in lies or otherwise:
Maybe Megan Fox [as a nun] should go bear-faced like Heidi Klum with her teddy-bear print for children in need :-)

Hope you have a great weekend

Cold and frosty here this morning in Ireland,
hoping it is warmer where you are!

Margaret said...

Oh, I've had a l-o-n-g day and am off to transport a daughter to a party... what else would a mom be doing on a Saturday evening...

I LOVE the title and this prompt. I most likely will be posting this for Open Link Monday, but I will be 'round soon to read all the poems.

Shay, thank you for actually asking me to bullshit you. I think you will be pleased with my choice of subject! Brilliant prompt, thanks so much, just in time for elections... Amy

Oh shit, mine would have been longer but I confused Trifecta with Toads (twenty lashes with a wet eyelash) and did the 33 words. What a freaking dunce. Serves me right that I have to go to church tomorrow, hee hee. Amy

Margaret said...

Late, but I will link this with Open Link Monday. Thanks, Shay! Mine is a bit sappy - but in a good way:)
