ON STRIKE!!!!!!!

The Prompt: Absolute Beauty—Do you agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder or is all beauty contingent on a subjective point of view?


I am tired of being asked to agree or disagree with the obvious!  Things said a million times over? What is the need of saying them again? What difference can it possibly make for me to agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder? I might as well say bread is white or the ocean is wide. Who needs to hear this again? Who needs to hear this again? See? You are already tired of hearing it and I’ve only said it twice. I am a card-carrying opponent of the trite, the platitude, the obvious. And so in protest I am not answering today’s prompt. Long live originality. Reward offered for an original prompt.

    Yeah, had a hard time coming up with an original post on this one for whatever reason. You seemed to put it in perspective. Now maybe if I had heard about the reward before I started writing……..

    Ha. Guess I was in a bad mood before I even read the prompt, but I had been looking for it since 4:30 (whole story but not here) and then got involved in trying to get a press release off that kept being changed by Drop Box and then realized I was long past prompt time and eagerly signed on to find . . . .!!! I remembered I had a poem written on this subject for NaPoWriMo last year, but even my own poem on that topic bored me too much to post. Okay. Diatribe over.
