Ever After

Happy endings
are all alike
touched with tendings
towards a big strike
for the good side
And bad’s denied
before their score

In response to the 5 September 2019 daily
Smitten Book Challenge prompt
 at the
Brave & Reckless blog and based on the title
of a well-regarded book where the main
character is a lesbian or a woman exploring
her sexual identity, "Happy Endings Are All
Alike" by Sandra Scoppettone.

She Must Be Mad

It’s about her
the young woman
who caused a stir
by getting in.
She thought there’d be
equality.
Poor soul. How drôle.

Ha'sonnet title inspired by the

31 August daily prompt at the
Brave & Reckless blog and based
on the title of a seminal feminist
book ‘she must be mad’ by
Charly Cox.


Added title to a ha'sonnet I had

writtenlast year because the
prompt immediately jumped
out as a better fit than the title
options I had come up with.
