Magpie #89 "The Words She Would Write"

The Words She'd Write
The words she'd write
"dangled dead weight"
cut to the very quick
The words she had wrote
"precariously to hang"
at the end, the rope
The words she'd written
"displayed full frontal"
the requiem mass

  5. ..this is like three haikus amalgamated together to produce a heavy verse.. the last three lines are intense and suggest a commanding tone! sharp shorty here!(:

    Keep safe!

  10. Yes, I did "Google" the entire poem, and I didnt notice anything that extraordinary, or am i missing something. I did see that my poem popped up on another's site, but I am use to these glitches! It is the ghost in the system. Hope everyone had a marvelous Happy Halloween! And Happy All Saints Day today Nov 1!
