“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,
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 gossip mongers 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 pizzazz 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.
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!
