BrewNSpew Cafe – September 24, 2018


Word of the week – taradiddle/tarradiddle – (noun) – a trivial or childish lie; a fib; pretentious nonsense. Synonyms – fable, fabrication, fib, lie, mendacity, story, tale, whopper.

Oh, such petty fiddle-faddle

why make up such a taradiddle

no way tactical or practical

methinks such acts are theatrical

  a fanciful mind deems it classical

but for me, comme ci, comme ça

a zesty and comical fabrication

must offer a stunning presentation

to warrant a standing ovation

By the way, here is what’s happening at the BrewNSpew Café

On late Mondays or early Tuesdays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Café and one of the features is “word of the week”. I create my own wacky poem with my take on the word.

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 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.

  2. Eugenia,

    I got your LinkedIn invite and accepted this morning. I’m glad you told me because I didn’t get a notification and I’m rarely on that site. I used your word for today to create a poem. 🙂 Thanks for inspiring and hosting such great creative fun!
