The cuckoo’s egg

My ego and I
Kingdom of the wicked
An ordinary life

The idiot brain
– A short history of nearly everything
But otherwise no panic

Cakes and ale
Despair is temporarily over

(supported by For Whom the Bell Tolls)

When I read the boek spine poem Little Learner posted, I knew I wanted to make one too. It was a prompt on dVerse, the online poet’s pub. It makes me off prompt for napowrimo.net, where describing fruit was the suggested prompt.

        Please ignore everything I write, I confused two titles. The panic one is from a Belgian writer. The despair one from a Dutch poet.

    Excellent! This is such a creative prompt. When I saw one of these, I wanted to write mine too and I did, but didn’t know it’s for dVerse too. Now I see that I posted mine before dVerse chose it as its theme. I hope I can still link there. (Mine was for Day 17.) I’m especially grateful that you translated the Dutch titles. 🙂
