Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)


Trying out new forms and this looked easy....NOT !! Well not for me. 

After many drafts and changes than I care to it is.

On the subject matter...well honestly it was inspired by the drama I see on facebook

Somedays I simply roll my eyes, other days I choose to remove their ability to show up in my newsfeed. But some days I can only laugh when the Drama Queens post how much they don't like reading Drama on their facebook page. lol
I often think some want or need the attention, or perhaps they simply need to look up the definition of Drama in the dictionary.  Now..I wonder if I should post the definition in their comment section....hmmmm...NO  lol  What drama that would create ehhhh??? 

Thanks for reading my poems !!

Intense Theatrics

Remove self from a dramatic scene as if it didn’t appear. Deaf and dumb it’s best to become when it rears its turbulent head. Dramatic scenes unrecognized will soon implode when ignored. By: Debra Squyres Started: 6 days ago Finished: 1/14/13
Note: Trying out new forms and this looked easy....NOT !! Well not for me. After many drafts and changes than I care to it is. On the subject matter...simply on FACEBOOK DRAMA !! More info in About this poem. Have a blessed day !! Sijo is the classic form of unrhymed poetry in Korea. Sijo have three long lines. Each line varies between 14 and 16 syllables, with the middle line often the longest. The first line states a theme, the second line counters it, and the third line resolves the poem.

    Very nice, very dramatic. I don't know the form, but, given your description, I may give it a whirl. Thanks. Jack

    Lifes resolutions win again. No matter what we do. Hopefully we'll ride in style and it'll all become brand new. Great job Debra. The many drafts and changes paid off nicely. :)
