It’s been three months since first I came
to make these daily posts my aim;
and though I do not seek to maim,
to damage, libel, slur or blame
the reputation or the name
of the guy or of the dame
who promised they would fan my flame
(increase my fans and spread my fame)
if I would join this posting game,
I fear the prompts have turned too tame.
Do any of you feel the same?
These prompts are getting pretty lame!!!!

Daily Prompt: 190 Days Later—Back on January 21st, we asked you to predict what day #211 would be like. Well, July 30th is that day — how have your predictions held up so far? If you didn’t reply to the prompt at the time, is this year turning out to be as you’d expected?

        It seems as if many of us had, alas, joined the Daily Prompt-ing long after that January 21st posting. 😦 No matter. You’re A-Okay in my book!

    I thought this prompt would be interesting, particularly for the bloggers who were around back in January! I know for myself it was interesting to look back and reflect on what I expected to see verses what actually took place this year. I’m sorry if you didn’t like the prompt! 😦

      You seem a very decent bloke
      I didn’t mean to take a poke
      at your fine character or name
      when I your prompt chose to defame!
      And so it seems to be my shame
      that though I here aver and claim
      my poem was innocent in intent,
      I fear I hurt a decent gent.
      And so I beg your pardon, Rocky,
      I didn’t mean to be so cocky!!!!!


      P.S. And, congratulations on passing Calculus. I quit after Trig. So now who is the smart one?
