Troll Tweeting

The Befuddled Flatulent Blogger

Palpable perplexity burns into his face,
round and round. Malodorous gases smell
as he writes his blog. Then, he twitters in place

for his odious histrionics are such a disgrace
and his feedback is a bombshell.
When palpable perplexity burns into his face,

ambiguous other worldliness will trace
upon his demeanor. Repugnancy will dwell.
He will write his blog and twitter in place

like a chronic, unhinged, mental case.
As he puts negativity on each brain cell,
palpable perplexity burns into his face.

He grumbles about the reeking rat race.
He does not think. He can just rebel,
write his blog, twitter in place,

denounce all in his knowledge base,
make obnoxious noises, pollute and pummel .
When palpable perplexity burns into his face,
he composes his blog and twitters in place.

The Art of Villanelle

Today, I wrote the poem for D’verse Poetry prompt by Grace to write a villanelle. According to The highly structured villanelle is a nineteen-line poem with two repeating rhymes and two refrains. The form is made up of five tercets followed by a quatrain. The first and third lines of the opening tercet are repeated alternately in the last lines of the succeeding stanzas; then in the final stanza, the refrain serves as the poem’s two concluding lines. Using capitals for the refrains and lowercase letters for the rhymes, the form could be expressed as: A1 b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 A2.
