Anti-Valentines Day Challenge



Sherry Ramsey, fearless, interim, co-leader of our online, Second Life writing group affectionately known as The Quillians, issued a writing challenge last week. We were to write an “anti-Valentine” poem.

Here’s my tongue-in-cheek, bumpity-thumpity response:

    Thanks for the mention, Nancy. I linked back to this one from my own entry, as well. 🙂

    I like your poem, and I think it’s best appreciated when read aloud, which I did.
