Write Me a Birthday Dirge – Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, 2016 (Day 2)

The first time I listened to the “Viking Birthday Dirge”, I nearly died laughing. Since my birthday is on April 5th, and this is Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, a birthday dirge (with ridiculous amounts of raucous laughter) is only appropriate.

Today’s Prompt – write a birthday dirge.

Dictionary.com says that a dirge is “a chant of lamentation for the dead; a funeral song or tune, or one expressing mourning in commemoration of the dead; any composition resembling such a song or tune in character, as a poem of lament for the dead or solemn, mournful music”. Well, I don’t see why the dead should get all the creepily mournful chanting. So, let’s do it, my Wicked Luvs. Let us take the dirge motifs, twist them a bit, and turn it into a dark birthday poem. 😀

Link Instructions – Leave the direct link to your poem as a comment in the following format: “Who Needs a Skull to Party Hard?” – http://magalyguerrero.com/who-needs-a-skull-to-party-hard/

Please visit other Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month participants. This prompt will be open until April 6th at 12:00am EDT, so we have a couple of days to delight in each other’s dirges.

Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, 2016

Do unto Each Other, my Wicked Luvs…

Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month is blooming nicely, with our first of thirteen prompts: Has It Begun to Sprout? I’m sharing this wee in-between prompts post to remind everyone to mingle.

We have been all right about visiting those who shared their links the first day the prompt went live, but only a few Wicked Darling participants have visited those who posted after April 2nd. The soul of this kind of event finds its true fire in sharing the yum. Feedback gives a writer tremendous pleasure (it also guides the muse). So let us do unto each other, my Wicked Luvs.

And because many of you aren’t on Instagram or haven’t like my Facebook page (yet… *cough, cough, wink, wink, cough*, let me share some of the Dark Poem Bits you’ve been missing:
