  • Pessimism (Word Prompt Challenge #3)

    So I finally decided to give it a go as well (fashionably late or long overdue)
    10 Words: aim - blame – came - drain - game - main - plain - shame - stain – train
    (Haven’t decided whether I like the outcome yet…)




    Pessimism

    Life has no aim.
    Death is to blame.
    Each new-born soul came
    to life, to drain.

    We play its game,
    as a side-act or a main.
    In pursuit of the un-plain.
    Destined for shame.

    In the end, I’m a stain
    on our train to oblivion.

    This is great, Pyro! The poem tells a story from beginning to end without leaving the tracks and is as spare as can be. Challenge met!

        Wow Pyro - I think you get the prize for using fewest words ever for one of these challenges! (I haven't actually counted, but this has got to be close if not the winner.) Great job!
