Reaping What He Sowed

The greedy magnate built his conglomerate
Using unharmonious techniques of concinnity
And he quashed the competition
By the most devious of means
Including abusing his own employees

He’s impervious to criticism
And does as he pleases
With no consideration for the consequences
But the scumbag will reap what he sowed
When at the stroke of midnight tonight
All employees company-wide will go on strike

Truthful Tuesday — Superstition

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…

Whether tossing a pinch of salt over your shoulder or not walking under ladders, and whether you believe in the superstition or not, what superstition, if any, do you still observe?

I was thinking about just saying “No, Frank, I’m not at all superstitious about anything” in a comment on Frank’s post and not writing my own post today. I’m a pragmatic guy, an atheist, and a realist, and I simply don’t believe in that kind of stuff. So why, as someone who doesn’t observe any superstitions whatsoever, bother writing a whole post just to say “no”?

I can think of only one reason to do so and this is it…

Well, that and for some clickbait.

FOWC with Fandango — Impervious

FOWCWelcome to June 29, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “impervious.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
