Get off you backside and conquer your part of  the world

Or not.  Maybe you would rather use your imagination, no matter what just do you

Sharp (an acrostic poem)

Slicing through all the bull that was in his way

He cut to the heart of the matter with his acerbic wit

All the while looking damn good doing it

Reaching for a his negroni he took a satisfyingly bitter sip

Punctuating a perfect performance

Sweet (an acrostic poem)

 

Saccharine dreams and ideals permeate her world

Winding her up into a sugar coma

Everything becomes a surreal new reality

Enabling dark pits and holes to grow in the enamel of her TV smile

That didn’t matter though, because the nothings told her so

Certify (an acrostic conversation)

Can you show me for sure who you claim to be?”

Even a DNA test wouldn’t be good enough for the likes of you.”

Really that would be a great first step.”

That was supposed to be a joke.”

It was?  Security is no laughing matter.”

For goodness sake, just let me have the stupid WiFi password”

You can have it when I have at least twelve forms of photographic ID.”

Pretend (a 50 word post)

Let’s play a game of pretend.  Pretend you are a better person.  Pretend you are kind.  Pretend you are smart.  Pretend that you matter.  Keep pretending a bit more each day.  My daughter pretends to be a princess every day, and I believe her.  Make the world believe in you.

Plain (an acrostic poem)

Pushing the paperwork across his desk

Larry knew he wasn’t the most exciting man

As a matter of fact, he preferred that he was so stable

It made his life nice and predictable

Now if he could just convince himself of that

Blessed (an acrostic poem)

Being poor could be a burden at times, okay most of the time

Lenny tried to not let it bother him though

Even as he poked through the trash to find redeemable bottles

Sifting through the rubbish Lenny found a lottery ticket

Scratching it off, Lenny had won ten thousand dollars

Ever since that day Lenny mailed out two Hallmark cards with a crisp $20 in each

Doing random acts of kindness to show people that they matter
