Word of the Day: What Matters Most

BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

brabble
/brab-uhl/
obsolete verb
(used without object) brab·bled, brab·bling.

to argue stubbornly about trifles; wrangle


Step Away

Step away, let the Hellsite brabble, today instead travel
direct democracy, alter everything fools do and say:
elevate yourself above the rabble, prove that truth
matters more than promising you’ll make a change;
this is the deed that truly channels hope
get off your arse today, then go and vote.

Word of the Day: Step Away

BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

baragnosis
/bar-ag-noh-sis/
noun: pathology

loss of the ability to estimate or perceive the weight of an object


Step Away

no idea what this is, I am, staring at a mirror
without lies, as decision’s made to take inside;
baragnosis finally equates a truth to space
right place within dysmorphia’s abode. Accept
all that’s ever possible, yourself as this, as is
step away from judgement, ease the load.

Word of the Day: You Think

BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

albocracy
from the latin albus (“white”) +‎ -cracy
noun

governance by white people, especially Europeans

[Additional Notes] Today was a grim day for women’s reproductive rights in the USA. As many of my friends live and work in the US or are living in the UK, it is depressing in the extreme to watch this play out. There for the grace of Deities go us… This was my reaction.


You Think

… this is a victory, their democracy, belief of right to life
each unborn child a man’s concern, every one that might
one day be turned into a warped idea of a second son:
that albocracy must maintain its hold, at whatever price
all those others will be forced to pay. Except, today, this is
all proof we require, to know all thought is only for the self …

Word of the Day: An Absence of Willpower

BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

abulia
/əˈbuːlɪə/
noun: aboulia

an absence of willpower or an inability to act decisively


An Absence of Willpower

guilt rolls around a tongue, spaghetti soft
not here, space to change, won’t budge
even with a name, truth’s holding out
aboulia lacking tools to task, can’t ask
'til now, and even if it did, they show
knowing what’s fallacious never cures
