This week the prompt words are eerie and costume but there’s a catch, Colleen has asked us to use synonyms. To join in Colleen’s challenge follow the link: https://colleenchesebro.com/2017/10/24/colleens-weekly-poetry-tuesday-challenge-eerie-costume/ Here is a relevant passage from my novel The Curse of Time – Book 1 – Bloodstone to set the tone for the poetry. I sensed a change in the […]
This is for all of you have come under the threat of the spam monster. It has been quite a problem recently for several bloggers, our well intentioned comments not appearing on blogs…. So I wrote this little poem with that and Halloween in mind. The Spam Monster It’s all hallows eve, You’ve no time for a pet peeve, The wretched spam monster making curds, Of your well thought out words. He insidiously turns your comments into mush, Sweeps them all away with a hot-wired brush, He’s all wires and circuitry, His gadgetry puts you into purgatory. But, don’t fret, don’t worry, help is at hand, The Happiness Engineers Askimet band, Party together, they’ll help you out. No need to storm, stamp, and shout! Stick your perky pumpkin by your computer, Light it with a ferocious candle to neuter, That bloody spam monster with his big hooter, Mr snooty, snotty, snooper. © Marjorie Mallon 2016 – aka, Kyrosmagica.

If you need any help with this problem Hugh has written a great post how to contact the Askimet engineers – here’s the link: Hughs Views And News: What To Do If your Comments Are Ending Up in Spam Folders Bye for now, Hope you liked the silly poem!

My friend Hugh invited me to join in on his Breakfast photography challenge, a recent idea after he and I joined Instagram. I usually have a bowl of cereal, a cup of bog standard tea and bite into an overripe banana, but today to make it a bit more special, I chopped up the overripe banana, and arranged it nicely. Then I decided […]
