Weekend Writing Prompt — Asinine

“Every time I see his face, hear his voice, or read about yet another asinine thing he’s done, it makes me want to scream,” Larry yelled at the TV screen.

“You need to keep your wits about you,” Sandy said. “Sometimes you’re too obdurate when it comes to you politics. You need to try to see things through a different prism.”

Larry sighed. “If you weren’t such a sexy, sultry broad, I’d dump you.”


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “asinine” and we must use exactly 74 words.Also for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (scream), Your Daily Word Prompt (obdurate), Ragtag Daily Prompt (prism), and Word of the Day (sultry).

      Ode of Deterioration Unto Detritus

      Charlie Kirk of Turning Points,
      an embarrassment for the USA
      …is but one example…
      of fools today.

      Decades of conservatism
      have led us all to this
      where there used to be
      a pretense that principles exist.

      Were there ever leaders,
      never mind the following masses,
      who cared about our country
      and weren’t self-absorbed asses?

      They used to have to argue
      for some good here and there.
      Now they’re confident you’ll
      propagate their crap everywhere.

      You’re sick enough of soul
      so devotedly asinine
      you love mammon over many
      and tousle others to get yourself in line.
