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. 😀

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.
