No sonnet today,
but don’t let that crushing news
stop you from voting!

Selling Fear

A two-for-one deal;
limited-time offer, and
no discounts apply.

Our brand new brand of
terror comes loaded with tons
of great new features.

Yes, that’s right folks; you
too can have a life of fear
and paranoia.

Don’t miss out on this
special once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity!

Resolved (Delayed): A Haiku

New year, new plan: post
work here on time always. (It’s 
still December, right?)

Become Our Newest 5×500 Writer! A Contest Announcement in Haiku

Much to our dismay,
5×500’s Sunday,
Nicole, is leaving.

We are very sad,
but life goes on, and now we
need a new Sunday.

Think you’d be great as
our new 5×500
contributor? Well,

this is your lucky
day. Submit a piece of prose,
poetry, whatev,

for a chance to join
our esteemed literary
ranks. Stop laughing. Sheesh.

Make sure it’s under
500 words (duh) and that
we get it before

Christmas so we have
time to go through submissions
before the New Year.

Also let us know
what you would do with the space.
Email all that to

bpmcgackin
at gmail dot com or to
thomdunn at gmail

dot com. We can’t wait
to read your pieces! Good luck,
and thanks for reading!

Friend or Foe?

Seeing Adam Ant.
Catching a bus very soon.
Stand and deliver!

Sorry, I’m Unable to Come to the Poem Right Now

But if you leave your
name and a brief message, I’ll
write you one next week.

Write Makes Might

It’s not important
to write constantly if you
don’t want to write well.
