Non Largesse – #NaPoWriMo22 – Day 11

#NaPoWriMo22, Other Poetry Add comments



So, this was my prompt:


“Following up on yesterday’s love poem, I have for you another deceptively simple challenge. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about a very large thing. It could be a mountain or a blue whale or a skyscraper or a planet or…” [Day Eleven (]

and I had a wee think to myself…

Hi, Society!


Always searching for credit

From those who would edit,

And flound’ring for praises

From people in stasis.


Et-Er-Ni-Ties feeling worse

In a curse-driven hearse

That careens to the deep…


All their bitter words seep

Through the membrane of ‘she’

To the soul.

Best to flee,

Casting good deeds aside.

Well now!

Hide their goodbyes

In the brain: ‘til the stain of their dissonant pain

Twists up things ‘she’ would do;

‘Til the blatant untruths

And shame-filled once-games

Become torments again.


Rinse and repeat.


Never vote with your feet!

Plant now your seat

At the next meet and greet!

Don’t Panic


Blue planet

Don’t panic

We won’t stick around.

You can annihilate us

Till we fertilise your ground.


Blue planet

Don’t panic

Yes, we all have plans;

But you still hold the aces,


Club us where we stand!



Hopefully you can tell from the above that the two ‘large’ things I decided to write about were social anxiety and climate change! 

Take care of yourselves, and I’ll be back tomorrow for Day 12 🙂
