Misguided, or: Missiles

A limerick

No to Russia's indefensible war!
No to those thieving, barbarous corps!
No, Mister Putin, 
No matter Kremlin spin,
We know full well that Ukraine isn't yours!

d’Verse poetics: No! Vember

At d’Verse, writers were encouraged to either:

  • Take a line from the poem ‘November’ by Thomas Hood and use it as springboard for a new poem; or:
  • Just say no. Thereโ€™s something you want to take a stand against, something you want to stand up and say โ€œNO!โ€ to. Whatever it is, get it out of your system and into a poem!

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

    1. That’s something I sometimes struggle with in my poetry, Terveen – because I curse under my breath all the time. It’s hard to write poems that reflect the emotions behind my spoken curse words without using those same words! ๐Ÿ™‚
