Higher Level Challenge... butterflyzrfree aka Gail posted the Duane's Challenges and I enjoyed being a part of both of them. Gail brings something to GP that has challenged the minds of many poets and turned out some real good poetry. Now lets take it to a higher level. I also look forward to another Duane's Challenge! If Gail would post another.

In the meantime; Higher Level Challenge; is here to challenge you. 12 lines minimum 21 lines maximum. Use 12 words minimum, but if really feel challenged and would like to get paid use all the words and phrases.

Each poet that writes a poem using all the words and phrases listed below, up to 4 poets, I will give them each 25 karma points. 100 karma points, I will give away, in hopes they too will pass them on to another poet.

These are your words and phrases:

apathy, fire light, falling, lady, minimum, elephant, four letter words, sickle, stones, throughout, philosophers, deep down, square egg, pink, ex, fill in the blank_______ , minus two, fat.
Karma: 901.40

I want to try this...but what do you mean by "fill in the blank_______" is that your own word..like you could use some random word like 'cup?'

Write a line that says fill in the blank and put the blank there for the readers to put the word there. Then the way you write the line is almost like you stating the word but just left it out.

You've broken my, fill in the blank_____ you don't care.

Now what word could go there? Heart, horse, glass, picture, sanity, thought.

It can get crazy. How many ways can that phrases be twisted around.

Lady Apathy named me after falling rain that falls falls and falls

with four letter words--namely 'Rays' Days' and 'What' 'What' 'What'

one that falls down like unexpected elephants with buttless whats and things.

or pink square eggs palpating the philosopher's ex with rings of purple hairs.

A guy named 'Fire Light' will minus two blue dudes; OK, mr? Dude

fat like a minimum of hairstringing ring a long with whatdyaa say?

Throughout sickle pickle-eyes, lime green birds dance the hoola with ease.

Stones glow like dummies eating rings with red-dumb dumb dumbs---OK;

weird fill in the blank____rows rumble with a broken words Poet;

he knows he likes to rhyme like Lady Apathy and he does does know-it..

Jamming until the light fades into dumb dumb stringle finger with made up words.

What's it matter, everybody likes weird manifestos with elephants that fly
in the sky like an absurd piece of pie,,,and no one wonders why...Laughing

The apathy of the fire light
kept falling on a lady
who, at a minimum,
looked not unlike an elephant
and used four letter words
when swearing by the hammer and sickle.

She threw stones, throughout, at the philosophers,
though deep down, she knew
that she had been born as a square egg
(or perhaps a pink elephant)
and even her ex had scorned her
for the shape of her (fill in the blank ______________)

She rates my poems minus two
and that's why I reveal to you
The fact of the matter was that
this woman was too bloody fat!

a lady of apathy
falling throughout
four letter words
feeling like a fat square egg
the pink elephant deep down
that philosophers and morons alike
deemed unfit
a minimum of stones thrown
but a sickle ex fire light
guiding her to leave
your fill in the blank______
and become
minus two eyes

Yesterday's firelight-
The Sickle rose, turned and set
On a blanket of powdrered stars
As one person and another
Went to the understanding
Of mortality
