Day 06: Fallacy

Dust and water purge

They will rise from earth to defend,
From the seas, whales will lift flight,
Mammoths from dust shall reform,
Sailing sky and scrapping earth they´ll fight.
Tanks will attack the shape shifting animal,
Rumors destroy economy making nature the criminal.
Missiles will try to take down the mystic whale,
Bang, bang, no explosions just watering an exploding fail.
There is no way to stop the mammoth of dust,
Nor the whale made out of water,
In an attempt of restoration humanity is mud,
But as a symbol of purity, hope is fuel in the creatures blood.

Today prompt

Unsound arguments. Failures of reason.


Today, let’s write poems that are wholly illogical.

Let’s see how miserably we can get reason to fail; both our reason and the reason that guides our readers.

Try not to consider this prompt as a call to nonsense but rather a call to use your good (creative) sense to arrive at firmly misconstrued ends. Surprise yourself!

Alternatively, make poetry from known philosophical fallacies. Make that straw man stand by a red wheelbarrow, put the genius of the crowd to the test, or tell the tale of a (tautological) tub.

“Poetry…where magic is supreme and where therefore things happen which realistically-minded strangers find difficult to understand.”  – Robert Graves

It was a little hard for me to come up with something, but flying whales and mammoths made out of dust, is not that bad of an idea, is it?

I don´t really write a lot in English, but fortunately I´m having a great time doing these writing prompts.  Dear, reader if you notice any grammar errors, please let me know. Thanks :)
