So … when you write upon your blog you generally want to write something good or at least something that you perceive to be good. Don’t you? This has been a very busy day for me. I have no time to write, none at all. Victoria Slotto has a great prompt today for her fourth Wednesday prompt at The Bardo. Her delicious prompt is about using fabulous (my word) verbs instead of lazy (again, my word) ones. Kind of like, you do not want to say: “John went to the store.” Why say that when you could instead say: “John charged through the underbrush as he proceeded into town to the store.” Well, OK that is a bit over the top. And that might be the problem with my poem! I had time for great verbs, but no time to write a good poem. So here is to verbs! This is linked back to Victoria’s article “God Is A Verb” at The Bardo.

Great verbs. I’m going crazy with a sudden onslaught of pop-ups and can think of a few more (unpublishable) verbs to add to the mix. :0)
Liz, this is great verb-al fun! I enjoyed it much. So full of engery. Well done. xo
Hmmmmmmm! That would be “energy.” LOL! Some of us just can’t seem to remember our specs.

Good EVERYTHING! I smiled all the way through!

Your use of strong verbs made me smile. You certainly conveyed the message! I wish people used more of them than insults.
I would say your verbs are the end of that phisherman,
Great verbs!! Down with those who phish. (I love Ronald’s comment above!)
Your verbs are exceptional… ha.. and what we would like to do with phisherman… a rod is not enough,,,( and thosel letters from Nigeria have not warranted my reading recently)..
What do you mean it’s so bad… I beg to differ.. I sincerely think it’s wonderful. It made me smile. Well done!
