Today is Sunday...NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

So we have to take a day off from the A-Z challenge....Bummer !

BUT... For the NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011 Today is ...

17. Write a poem that includes these words: bamboozled, bloodlust, bibliography. Have the title include one of these words: contradiction, constellation, cranberry.


The bibliography of the constellation
was only half of the tale
for many were in contradiction
of how the story did unveil

They were at peace for most of their known time
or so this story goes
until a bloodlust dominated, leaving
Cranberrian's with woes

But the fact is they were bamboozled
into a bloody war
by the Blazer constellation
the rival's next door

The Blazers wanted  everything that
the Cranberrians had
so they hatched a plan that got
them fighting mad

And when the war was over
and the Blazer's got their prize
what they thought they won
was nothing but lies

So in lies the contradiction
did they get what they deserved
or was the Cranberrians way of life
ultimately preserved

HUUUMMMM... not sure about this one, but it is what it is today...
