Something tells me that the 8th day of Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month will spring delicious poetry to giggle aloud to. Every time I picture symptoms for imagined maladies such as Math Allergies, CFCD (Compulsive Facebook Checking Disorder), Candleholism, Twitter Tourette Syndrome… I can’t keep from cackling. Feel free to use any of the fictitious illnesses I’ve listed here. The Happy Hospitalist’s Funny List of Fake Medical Diagnoses, Signs and Symptoms might help, too. I warn you though… some of the listed illnesses might come across as rather offensive… and freaking hilarious *cough, cough, cough*.
Today’s Prompt – Write a poem that illustrates the symptoms of a quirky made up illness.
Link Instructions – Leave the direct link to your poem as a comment in the following format: “The Third Kiss” – http://magalyguerrero.com/the-third-kiss/
Please, take the time to visit other Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month participants.
Let them know what you appreciate about their poesy.
I suspect they’ll delight in your courtesies just as much as you delight in theirs.
