Montezuma’s revenge, or: The Aztec two-step

A limerick

Costive, Sue plucked some special blue 'shrooms;
And though cringing at the caustic fumes-
She popped one in her mouth...
But this swiftly went south,
For, for hours, she's been in her bathroom!

What do you see prompt? (#WDYS)

This limerick is my response to Sadje’s WDYS prompt this week, which is to write a piece inspired by the above image of three blue artificial mushrooms planted in a grassy area.

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!
