Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge #SynonymsOnly – Deception

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 135 #SYNONYMSONLY

for

Pretty & Ugly

 

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words.

 

I’ve chosen to write a Double #Tanka

 

Deception

 

 

Deception

 

Disguised as promise

A chaotic clusterfuck

Beautifully concealed

Reality distorted

Hostility reigns rampant.

 

Suppressing the truth

Predator assumes applause

Undigested lies

Pandora’s present unleashed

Smorgasbord of hate revealed

  1. Wow… so much passion in your words. Knowing you as I do, I would say this double Tanka helped you to let go of some pent-up anger at the “world’s political arena.” It’s all frustrating as hell, isn’t it? ❤
