12 given words:
shed primitive wedge nasal
pâro ((n) the feeling that no matter what you do is always somehow wrong)
smart mash pile witch  scrawny disagree
vicarious (received, or suffered in place of another)

shed the fears in a primitive sense
wedged within a smallness of space
making nasal sounds from underwater

a paro a defeatist in a way unfair to his
own being for he took himself to be smart
why mashed in, thrust like a pile driver?

was this a vicarious punishment where
karma was seen rearing its ugly head
a witchy imposition on a scrawny lad?

disagree on certain principles but not to
be nasty to one so vulnerable and helpless

  1. Strong, deep words, that really make us pause and think. Thanks.

  2. One sure wouldn't want karma like that hanging over their head. Disagreements shouldn't turn nasty indeed.

  3. I was brought up to believe "If you can't say anything nice keep your mouth shut".
    Loved how you wove the given words to your advantage.


  4. Nice use of the given words Hank, you have a talent for it

    Happy Tuesday

    Much love...

  5. That is some kind of black magic hex!

  6. Yeah, the nastiness seems unnecessary, but so many allow it.

  7. "disagree on certain principles but not to
    be nasty to one so vulnerable and helpless"
    A righteous rule!

  8. It's like kicking on someone already laying.

  9. Bravo! Great use of given words to deliver this powerful message.

  10. My goodness that photo and such a brilliant accompaniment of your verse!!

  11. Poor scrawny lad, vicariously taking that cruel punishment for those parolikes.

  12. The perfect photo to compliment your words...I can't understand the nastiness in people.
