My Opinion is…

Constructive criticism can be utter bosh

Unfolding ideas almost awash

High fives questioned as awes or flaws

Is it wise to hide our guffaws

Or raise our voice to quash the cause

Burn Out

118092-Out-There

 Scorching words should not be heard

We got no need for evil misdeeds

Atrocities breed from things absurd

Define your soul while sewing seeds

The best foot forward is the one that leads

The Half of it All

 

Transcribe a mind for it’s knowledge

Spilled ink not learned in college

A glass half full of the smallage

Fine brandy subject to a tallage

Sad souls sell their knowledge

A glass half empty of the smallage

Creative senses lost in college

Witless souls live that on the edge

Their expiration beyond the ledge

-Eugenia

This poem is dedicated to anotherwisemonkey The challenge is to write a poem using words that rhyme with knowledge.

Cheers!
