Mini Challenge: Skittles, lamb chops, stingray, chagrin, clever devil

The Hypocrite --- Dragon Drivel- A mega Challenge

The Green Goddess of shampoo
Caused a real hullabaloo
With a ubiquitous TV add
That made the Senator mad.
Though throw pillows carefully placed
the bathers were still disgraced

He fingered his wedding ring
Of family values he did sing
This expert on the filibuster
In the greater Eastern Cluster
Said the spandex swim suit blue
Was too easy to see through
Operation Marigold he began
For the family took a stand

But then much to his chagrin
A clever devil did him in
Up the creek without a paddle
Would the high price lady tattle?
Project Stingray caught him too
Not even a please and thank you
Skittles Vodka on her breath
And perhaps a touch of Meth
Lamb Chops was her name
She had her fleeting fame
But she wasn’t family to him
The senator now so grim.

Our ten word challenge -The Angry Green Goddess

The Green Goddess looked down upon a brown world with a shrinking rain forest and began to cry. She loved the beauty she had created which mankind had destroyed or was destroying without even a please and thank you. As she saw it humans were now almost up the creek without a paddle. They had rejected the initiative of the Senates Operation Marigold and let a single senator filibuster it to death. They continued to use polluting shampoo and laundry soap. They poured CO2 into the air. They covered the land with cement. They cut down tree after tree.
This despite their propensity to have throw pillows with Save the Planet embroidered on them and the ubiquitous spandex swim suits with the same message across the back..
They had treated her creation like a kept woman not worthy of the respect of one with a wedding ring.
What could she do?
Perhaps if she let the oceans rise she could get rid of some of the pesky things. The earth would be better off without them.


  1. Dragons are very smart creatures. They understand the earth is just exercising its own brand of pest control.

  2. Ah the Earth Goddess's Revenge! I love it Fandango. Nice to know you Dragons are Green. :)

  3. Is the Green Goddess a Dragon Goddess, maybe?

    I'm impressed by your poetry!

  4. Dragons, you have outdone yourselves this week. Bravo!

  5. I always knew that Dragons were smart, but wow! You out did yourselves.

  6. Dragons with a talent for lengthy hilarious limericks and an insight into Mother Earth's revenge. Dragons Rock.

    There once were some Dragons from a Castle
    Their writing was supreme with no hassle
    They picked up their pens, got on with the games
    And managed to publish between the flames

  7. love you poem

    and your foreshadow of Mother Earth's pain and revenge - if anyone gets it, dragons certainly do

  8. Loved both of your writings this week.

  9. Dragons, you are quite the poets! I am assuming this was a combined effort... that's a LOT of thinkin' for ONE dragon in ONE day!

    I think the Green Goddess should have a chat with MY God though... the whole flood thing... well... the people were still sinners when they re-populated. I'm thinkin' they'd still be polluters too... *sigh*
