Tuesday Chatter Weekly


Hi there! Have a seat and enjoy the buzz. You’ll find the Tuesday Chatter Café, a fun place to meet for coffee and a weekly chat. Be kind to one another because what happens here doesn’t stay here. By the way, the tattlers like to talk.

Profound flashbacks of yesterday

A pompous parade has lost its way

Sheeple in a game of charades

Original ideas often mislaid

Costume masks obscure selfie faces

Perception blurs snapshot places

Festive moments of who’s portrayed

Whilst enjoying their marmalade

A copy/paste as someone else

No face to face with oneself

Those that opt to masquerade

Their alter egos a societal display


Tuesdays are Meet and Greet at the café

    Interesting use of an application function “copy/paste” entwined in your poem to illustrate the masquerade of another. I used last week’s word prompt in today’s post. I hope you’ll decide to drop by. Thanks for hosting! 😉
