This month's list is dedicated to the risky proposition currently called 'Democracy'.
Even for our out-of-nation Toads and visitors - what happens in the US November 8th will for good or ill directly impact the rest of the world.
The challenge: describe your view on this year's US election - how it affects you, how it angers or delights you, how you will be moving to a small island that likely will be consumed by global warming soon, but hey, better blue than orange.
Part (A): you may NOT use pejoratives, curse words, obviously denigrating terms, etc.
Part (B): Instead, take the approach of Dorothy Parker:
"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.or Oscar Wilde:
"Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much."
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.Part (C): take at least 3 of the following list of words and weave them into a new poem for the challenge, observing parts A and B above:
novel, toss, lightly, force, money, God, look, forgive, enemy, annoy, happy, cause, go.
As a reminder, please post the poem to your own blog, link that specific post in Mr. Linky below, and please revisit over the next few days so you can read your fellow contributor's efforts.
