Do their glands also tell whether the mate is good for them? Are their badger divorces? And divorce attorneys?
I didn’t come across any information about divorces in my reading, but female badgers have to be receptive to the advances of male badgers – it’s not by default
I like that – more power to female badgers!
Are you actually Roger Dangerfield?
Do you mean Rodney? ❤
oops I did.. thought it was close enough 🤷♀️
He was iconic!
I loved the poem. The picture is so cute. In some instances, mating can mean danger.
True! When I wrote this, I didn’t even think of that!
Where do you find the cutest pics?
I use Google images and search for images that are free to use. I think have images makes a big difference!
I guess as a purest I stuck to the Crapsey Cinquain… But this is enticingly fun. I am enjoying that you are taking the Badger theme to new heights!
I kinda like the symmetry of this form, Muri 😀
I’m sure you’re right.
And wow, you’re on a Badger Hexastich streak and you’re rocking it. Keep going. Love them all.
👏 ❤️ smile.
yeah – it’s not a series I ever foresaw myself writing, but I’m rather enjoying it!
You’re rocking it. You make it seem easy. Congrats. You’re a natural.
All I know about these syllabic forms I learned (maybe learned) from Colleen At Tanka Tuesday. Could get addictive but it’s a good addiction. Love them.
I stumble hard with the ones that insist on rhyme. Hard.
And then there’s the Sestina. That one I’ve tried but never published. It kills me.
Keep going, dear friend. Good night from me. xo
There’s danger in romance every time, David.
To me, it seems fitting that the gland works that way. 😉
*laughing* nice one, Susan!
