Recondite – #YDWordPrompt October 19, 2020


(of a subject or knowledge) little known; abstruse.

Milly walked through the aisles. She couldn’t find anything that piqued her interest. The teacher had given explicit instructions to find a topic that was something that would have enough information to write a report on. So many of the teen issues she was considering had recondite information and she could probably only write a paragraph about each topic.

Sedition: Your Daily Word Prompt


Sedition: conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

USA Condition

In our condition 

The idea of sedition 

Leaves us in a position 

To think that revolution 

Is a solution 

To fight this disintegration 

Of the civilization 

Of an American institution 

Based on the frustration 

And realization 

That our population 

Is about to malfunction!

Proud: Your Daily Word Prompt

Written for:

The Proud Cat

The cat in the hat 

Looked right at himself 

saw what he liked

Proud of his pic on the shelf 

He wanted the children 

To feel his way too 

He knew that he’d get it 

He’d make them brand new 

He started with babies 

And the diapers they wear 

He wanted them pretty 

On their babes’ derriere. 

He went on to toddlers 

Who toddle around 

He told them to giggle 

He just loved the sound 

He looked at the boys 

And he told everyone 

That they were so handsome 

With that he was done. 

The girls he just smiled 

For their beauty was there 

The cat told them never 

Settle for less than their share. 

The parents they loved him 

That cat in the hat 

They loved his whole message 

And encouraged him that.

That I have surely made ascertain 

That you’re the one that I love now

Renounce – #YDWordPrompt May 7, 2020

Written for YDWP:

He sees me differently

I hate to think I’m fat 

There’s so much more than that. 

He knows that I am smart 

And really good at art. 

I know that myths are bad 

I’d renounce them if I had 

More faith in my being 

Just like he is seeing.
