COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 135 #SYNONYMSONLY
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
Disguised as promise
A chaotic clusterfuck
Hostility reigns rampant.
Suppressing the truth
Predator assumes applause
Pandora’s present unleashed
Smorgasbord of hate revealed
