Blacklisted

Day 15: Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

Somehow, we’ve already Bon Jovi’d our way to the half-way there mark of this challenge. Let’s make it the rest of the way home.

For today’s prompt, write a poem with at least four of the following eight words:

flat
ring
lavish
vessel
paper
blacklist
gaudy
tooth
Of course, ambitious poets will immediately try using all eight words, but four will do if you’re just trying to get through today’s prompt.

Blacklisted

Through no fault of my own

suddenly I found myself

laid flat-out on the floor

Looking above me only

to be blinded by a lavish ring

that it appeared more

gaudy than posh

What happened?

 

 

Gathering my wits I found

The Fall brought a loose tooth

a paper of complaint

and an odd vessel next to me

holding much-needed ice

to soothe the indignity

of it all

 

Grace was never my virtue …

but to be blacklisted from

this group due to a fall

is incomprehensible …

or was I pushed …
