The Agony of Defeat

It would have gone fine if she had been able to think up any disaster at all that would make a good story but alas the only disaster she could think of was that for the very first time she was not going to be able to meet a prompt and since she had suspended the rest of her life in order to blog, that pretty much signified the end of the world as she knew it, so she could see that she was going to have to take up another pastime such as tatting or or embroidery or coloring where there was absolutely no way anyone would ever issue a challenge she wouldn’t be able to meet!!!!

For the dVerse Poets one-sentence poem prompt.

Here is the impossible prompt wherein I met my defeat:

Rules from host Amaya at Gospel Isosceles at d’Verse this evening on writing a Death Sentence:
The poem must tell a story in one sentence.
The poem must explore the theme of ‘the end of civilization as we know it.’
The story must tell of an odd or embarrassing incident, either heard about, witnessed, or autobiographical.
There is one more hidden rule that must be followed if your poem is to be a “death sentence” in its pure form: it must be improvised.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
