BrewNSpew Cafe – August 20, 2018


Welcome to the BrewNSpew Café where the coffee is as clear as mud and so is the conversation. Watch the gossipmongers, they like to stare.

“I think that knowledge enslaves us, that at the base of all knowledge there is a servility, the acceptation of a way of life wherein each moment has meaning only in relation to another or others that will follow it.”
― Georges Bataille, The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge

Word of the week – servile – adjective – having or showing an excessive willingness to please others Synonyms – obsequious, sycophantic, differential, subservient, fawning, unctuous, slavish, humble


Acting in a servile manner

oh, watch that dagger

as gossipmongers stare

flimsy thoughts elsewhere

but fawning adoration

only to seek attention

raises an arched left eyebrow

makes one think somehow

those that are too eager

 can be too much of a pleaser

 whether or not sincere

must not remain unclear


Welcome to the BrewNSpew Cafe where writers meet

Hi! I’m delighted to see you here at the BrewNSpew Café! It’s time to add some pizzaz to the events that take place at the cafe.

On Tuesdays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Café and one of my features is a word of the week. I create my own wacky poem with my take on the word. Methinks it will be fun to make my weekly event a weekly challenge. So here’s my plan.

You’re invited to join our talented community and challenge yourselves by writing your own poetry using the weekly featured word.

Here is a useful link offering explanations and examples for Traditional Poetry Forms

The guidelines are simple-

Look for my post. BrewNSpew Café, late Mondays or early Tuesdays.

Once you’ve completed your creation- 

LINK YOUR BLOG POST TO MINE WITH A PINGBACK. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a weekly Wrap-up of posts shared by our fellow bloggers.

Let’s be creative and have fun!!

By the way, I have another blog ThusNSuch


And a great place for coffee is the Go Dog Go Cafe. Come in and mingle with a fantastic group of talented writers. I’m one of the Baristas and proud to be a part this elite group.

    This poem reminds me of a typical Trump cabinet meeting. I love the new look of your home page.

      Good one! It reminds me of all politics in many ways.:) I’m glad you like the new look!

    I took the word in a more positive way in my poem. Hopefully, it will be understood. Thanks for the prompt.

    I think those who seem like overachievers to please others are looking for acceptance more than anything. Fabulous poem!

    I’m sorry for the late visit. It’s just been one of those weeks and it’s not even over yet. Thank you for joining me on the dance floor. Have a blessed and boogietastic day!
