Picture Prompt #117 (here)

MLMM given words:
streetwise rags bracket implosive creepy
delinquent geometric cheap near extend
implosive (the act or action of bringing to or as if to a center)
ganglion (small cystic tumor connected either with a joint membrane or tendon sheath)
charnel (a building or chamber in which bodies or bones are deposited)
APED given words
I wish, mirror

How I wish to mirror,

the streetwise who takes the impact
from various quarters and still survives

a page of the rags-to-riches stories of success
with encouraging accounts of hard work more than luck

to be within the bracket of people who with courage
created commercial empires providing employment

the few implosive in their make-up to provide the
impetus for innovative ideas for the good of mankind

not the creepy kind delinquent in nature in hues of
cornflower blue that create problems on the deprived
they who very much like to satisfy their weird form of desires

sadly though this is the small category of trouble-makers
attributing to 90% of quirks mankind can do without

a pity though they grow in geometric numbers on the cheap
to extend their bother to near disasters every time

they are a ganglion of sorts best to be stuffed in the madhouse of
haters and scoundrels in the chambers of the charnels

  1. There are always a few that can be a burden on the many

  2. Most interesting to read Hank.
    If a person has problems they are not burdens, perhaps they just need guidance, I believe there is good in everyone.
    Excellent write.

  3. You think deeply instead of simply!

  4. That's such an interesting take on the prompt!

  5. How I wish to mirror,

    the streetwise who takes the impact
    from various quarters and still survives

    That opening I knew right then you'd knocked it out of the park Hank! Outstanding, profound, and excellent job combining the prompts


  6. sadly a society includes all....

  7. Quite a noble wish! Loved this :D

  8. I like the way you set out your lines in couplets while still maintaining the flow of thought. You have used a very topical context for the words.

  9. It's an aspect that is always there

  10. Wow, you whipped these words into shape, Hank! Powerful, especially the closing lines.

  11. Stuff them!
    I like how you showed those with honor that we would want to mirror along with the ones we certainly do not.

  12. Clever usage of the words provided!

  13. How I wish to mirror.... deep and thoughtful, Hank. Well done with difficult words.

  14. I don't know whether mankind can do without those quirks. Seems to me mankind embraces them, lives for them. I like the darkness here, speaking some truths.
