Surely I Jest

by DragonSkulls

October Octo-Poem! Contest Winner 

I long for thine feedback with comments so dear.
That's stretching the truth and far from sincere.

I review for the content and depth it conveys.
That's also a lie, it's for gold that it pays.

Too many take sarcasm close to the heart.
I enter these contests to prove it's an art.

Don't weep for thy words I so freely molest.
It's simply my nature to mock thee in jest.


Writing Prompt
So, October is here, folks... but do you REALLY know what that means? Well, it COULD mean a whole host of things... but you must CHOOSE ONE. That's right! The link below will bring you to the humongous list of things for which October has been designated the official month for.

Your poetry assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to pick ONE of those items on that list and write an EIGHT LINE RHYMED POEM about it. There is no specified rhyme scheme, so it's totally up to you how the rhyming will work for your choice. However, when it's all said and done, it must be EXACTLY EIGHT (Octo) lines and it must RHYME. Remember to include your chosen month in your author notes!!

Please keep it CLEAN (I've seen some of those choices on there) and kick it up a notch with your presentation: make us WANT to celebrate October for your choice.... and, of course, want to vote for your Octo-Poem!!

Good luck and run over there and choose.....we're all waiting!! ;-) ;-)

Just playing with the prompt, folks.

My choice is National Sarcastic Awareness Month.

I created this pic myself with a couple Google Images
and my art program.
