Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.

Sites to help:  Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

  1. Likely not one of my better efforts…”oops” seems quite appropriate.

    The Divide

    The entitlement fires burn bright,
    brilliant with their passion, their rage,
    their endgame, quite simple to gauge,
    to turn freedoms dawn into night.

    Perhaps I do them a harsh slight,
    And if I do, then I say ‘oops’!
    my bad, I mistook irate troops,
    their rock-throwing, anti-vaccine
    anti-masking virulent screams,
    as folks willing to go through hoops.
