NaPoWriMo 2018- Day Ten

Title: Evidence (+Mantra)

Instead of dealing in what-ifs
we need to trade
in actual terms
in definite descriptions
towards genuine solutions
not muddle plausibility and possibility
as if they’re interchangeable
avoid littering memorised narratives
with superfluous details
hiding the truth in plain sight

do not fight fire with fire
nor poke at it with a scalding wire
two wrongs don’t make a right
no pen or sword will win futile fights

NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2017, Poetry

NaPoWriMo/ GloPoWriMo 2017 Day Twenty-Five (and a Tiny Note)

(a rare rhyming event, however, if this is a challenge, I must step out of my free verse comfort zone)

 

Fiction

I don’t ask why anymore
I don’t believe whispered lore

I trust my gut instead of head-lines
watch the ground, avoid sour mines

I see the puppeteer and the wires
if only there was money in cease-fires

The make belief has taken over
I don’t want to watch over my shoulder

Truth and lies mixed in together
stiff as a board, light as a feather
