836 - Life is Chaos

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: habitual, illustrious, and jumbled.

Life is Chaos

Life is chaotic—
Jumbled by outer forces
Beyond our control.

Habitual traits—
Our own dumb contribution
To the current mess.

Leaders disappoint—
Creatures of straw and tin.
Illustrious?  No.

  1. Creatures of straw and tin - no courage - yes why are those tits always in power? I imagine they weren't the winners or popular at school and are now taking out their revenge on entire nations...sigh..and yes life is indeed chaos...

  2. Your metaphors are powerful!

  3. Gets my vote.

    How do we consistently choose questionable leaders?

  4. The world is in chaos!

  5. men of straw can never be illustrious - an astute and piercing poem J Cosmo - as ever ;)

  6. Straw-men lacking brains... indeed I wonder how it happens...

  7. Although the world is always chaotic...we need to focus on our trails, and extra stuff just surrender......


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
