Poetizing the News… of 1913

Yesterday’s prompt was… tough. So I hope our muses bless us with lighter inspiration today. I spent at least two hours reading news articles, ads, personals… from 1913. I should say that I found what I was looking for about ten minutes into my search, but old news have addictive qualities. I can’t wait to read everyone’s contributions.

For Day 13 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem based on a headline from April 1913. Please provide a link to your source, when possible. I think it would be interesting to read it after experiencing your poem.


* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link to your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015”: https://magalyguerrero.com/napowrimo-with-magaly-guerrero-2015/. Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum. They might visit you back (it’s polite).

* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source will make really good news. I’m sure of it.

It seems manipulation has been around for a bit…

  1. I loved this one, Magaly—one of the few I just sat down and wrote without any notes or dredging my files for scraps. I took the Cubie route(no, not a diminutive native of Havana, but apparently the 1913 slang for Cubist):

    See everyone later!

  2. I suppose it *could* be the Caribbean–in an. erm… abstract sort of way…The pic I used did sort of remind me of bananas and plantains walking downstairs….;_) Gracefully, of course.
