Blame Game #DVersepoets #Poetics

So I blamed you,

because it was easy,

sweeter on the tongue.

Didn’t have the bite

of admitting

I could have been wrong.


I’ve just been writing up three longish poems so I felt something short and sweet was in order tonight.

  1. Funny I always think it’s much easier to take the blame. Unless it means going to prison, obviously. It shuts the other bleater up and you get some peace.

    • Being able to admit you only laid the blame on someone else because it was easier is the first step toward accepting responsibility. These words could make that step much easier for someone in the long run. Expertly penned.

  2. Glenn Buttkus says

    Within this brevity, you have put your finger on the pulse of probable complications.
    Responding to this prompt turns out to crank open some matters deep; I’m enjoying the diversity out here on the trail.

  3. Blame is a way we protect ourself. You are right it feels better at the time, but turns sour later. You know we are never wrong!! :>)

  4. I think we have all done this from time to time. Although I’m with Jane, I usually just give in because it’s easier. But not always. (K)

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
