In response to Andy Townend’sย Poetry 101 Rehab.

Fem or man

Man or wo-man

All hum-man

All equal

Some more

Some less

I'm a sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.

  2. Hi Mara, I’m confused – Ben and Andy recommended Poetry 101 Rehab, so been following and posting on Andy’s site …then found you were listed as the instigator? Have posted Fem today but see that your topic is habits … a favourite of mine so may repost an old poem. This is a great substitute for the poetry courses, thanks heaps!

    1. I’m so sorry about the confusion, but no worries, you got it right! While the Rehab was originally created by me, now Andy runs it and Fem is indeed the topic for this week ๐Ÿ™‚ (The habit prompt was my first prompt when I introduced the challenge in spring last year, it’s an old one.) Enjoy your poetry writing!

    1. I’m glad you like! I was just lazy to elaborate rather than deliberately being straightforward though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. That reads like a meditation – maybe ‘hum-man’ put that idea in my head ๐Ÿ™‚ Great poem, insetting those last two lines really makes that point stand out and makes for an interesting shape evoking ‘rights’ ๐Ÿ™‚
