Why? Day 16 April PAD

5 Comments

Why?

I don’t understand…

 

My entire life the

study of all things

scientific…

science related…

has been the norm

accepted as truth…

as fact…

as a true discipline…

for all students

 

Why? Now…

do certain politicos

suddenly call science

a myth…

a fantasy…

something not to

be believed…

unreal…

 

When did it all

go wrong that

science…

learning in general…

being well-educated…

curious about the

world around us

become something

the Extreme Right…

the UltraConservatives

now debunk and

call fake?

 

They are the ones

not living in

reality…

the real world…

that is ever-changing

EVOLVING…

 

How can some foolish

OLD

white men want

to take us…

ME…

My Country…

back to the dark

ages and try to

convince everyone

they are correct?

 

They will be

surprised when the

melting polar ice

caps lap at their feet

in their delusional

Ivory Towers…

Today’s prompt was to write a science poem…

 

I’ll Be Damned… Day 15 April PAD

Leave a comment

I’ll Be Damned…

My father was a

master in the art of

using curse words…

Damn or Damned

or Dammit were

sprinkled liberally

through his sentences

along with an occasional

HELL…

I inherited his ability

to use curse words

with finesse…

Although my words

run a bit more

colorful than an

occasional DAMN

or HELL

Of course…

A proper Southern

Lady did(does) not

use such language

I was always told

Well..

I am Southern

Never to be mistaken

for Proper

But…

A Lady non the less…

The older I get

the more colorful my

language becomes

Not that I don’t

have a vast vocabulary

But…

As my Mama always

told me,

“Sometimes you just

have to cuss!”

Well, I’ll be

DAMNED…

Mama was always right!

Today’s prompt asked us to look back to previous writing for an adjective to use for the prompt … I seem to use the word ‘damn’ much too often. Perhaps I need to do the reverse of what Mark Twain suggested!
