SAR-CHASM


Posted in OLN (Open Link Night) week #90.
Join us beginning 3 PM Tuesdays at dVerse



The King of Sarcasm
walked into the room
with tongue cocked
ready to shoot.

Zing. Zing
Pop. Pop.
Bang!

Crippling blows
struck their targets
as he walked off
to sit alone…
and yes—
lonely

  6. Strong message here, Steve, but sarcasm slips so easily from the tongue sometimes, or at least from mine. Fixed your URL in the Linky for you.

  9. One of the few times I can remember my dad being mad with my Mum was because of her sarcasm (the lowest form of wit).
