Credibility was a potent ally

definition of knowledge (here)

the 12 given words:
boil lost ditch middle light rumors 
vine nothing tell mighty seams sliver  

It had finally come to a boil
Lost in the woods
ditched in the middle
of nowhere

Not wanting to make light
of rumors garnered through
the grape-vine nothing was
more frustrating than to
hear tell it was the truth

The might of the mighty
could be seared at the seams
just through sliver thin
confirmation of unsolicited

Credibility was a potent ally

  1. Happy year's end Hank and Wishes for A Bright And Prosperous 2018

    Thanks for linking to Lunch Break 'Twelve Days Of Christmas'

    Much love...

  2. Thanks Hank for this great poem and all the support given to me throughout the past year. May next year bring you much happiness.


  3. The best information is only as good as its source. Wouldn't want survival tips for the woods from a city dweller.

  4. Cleverly done Hank. Credibility is a potent ally indeed. If only we could distinguish the truth from the lies...and how easy to be swayed by the rumours (it is)...
    Have a wonderful New Year.
    Anna :o]

  5. Your final line is an absolute truth Hank. Happy New Year.

  6. Well written, Hank! Thank you for your tireless support of the Whirl, and for contributions like this one. Happy New Year!

  7. I like this poem, Hank. Credibility is very important at these times.

  8. I believe one is nothing without their credibility.. Powerful write, Hank!

  9. Not a lot of credibility in evidence these must be so discerning. Loved this, Hank. Happy New Year!

  10. It amazes me that people still bluster their way through life without much credibility. Slowly we are reverting to taking short cuts and telling half truths of downright lies to bluff their way through life. Glad I'm old enough so I can just watch rather than compete these days.

  11. If only credibility lanced the growth of rumor before they boiled!

  12. Wow, absolutely fantastic blog. I am very glad to have such useful information.
