OLWG#166- A Question of Courage

This piece was written for OLWG#166



It can be used to fight disease
Wielded skillfully: it can be employed to defeat your enemies
It needs only to be displayed to cause fear to cower

But, I’ve got no further use for this suasion
I will put it away
My disease has left, or is at least in hiding
My enemies are now our enemies; my brothers and sisters share their strength

I have grown accustomed to unease and disquietude
I accept them as constant companions


The prompts were:

  1. I’ve got no further use for these
  2. writing is like sex
  3. courage is a weapon

  1. I reread this because poetry always disquiets me. Should be a salve; a sought expression when plain prose can’t cut it. But, this, after a re-read, I think I understand. At least prompts 1 & 3. 😉
