A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 11 September 2021!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out an Epigram. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is an Epigram?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
Epigrams are short satirical poems ending with either a humorous retort or a stinging punchline.
Used mainly as expressions of social criticism or political satire, the most common forms are written as a couplet: a pair of rhymed lines in the same meter.
Practitioners of this poetic expression include John Dunne, Ben Jonson, William Blake and Robert Frost.
Bent and battered, the live oaks have through ages survived until developed senses of modern man ripped them up still alive. Time rolls out down wide grassy lawns yet within these suburbs a dearth of it is spawned. Such volunteers are said to advocate but to the law, they instead frustrate. Copyright ©2001 Lachlan Ivy
