Xarcass!*

Hitchhiking in a state park,
A carefree walk before dark
In dappled bright of sunlight,
I see ahead to my right
The flies upon a carcass!

Was bitten by the Xarcass;
Had eaten way to liver
While drinking from a river.
I never will forgive ‘em,
...This dreaded parasite!

No mountain trapper did this,
Was minding his own business.
No hunter tracking jerky
Would do this to a turkey.
No one would have the right!

So if you plan to hitchhike
Or come by way of speed bike
To picnic at the campsite,
Beware the tiny Xarcass;
It’s NOT considered harmless,
...This fearsome parasite!


*xar·cass
/ ˈzärkəs /
noun
an organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the host's (fatal) expense.

Mount Pocono circa 2006

Witchburner.  
Definition: Towns people with torches!
 
 
On any given star filled night
they come in droves,
torches lit,  
dressed in robes.
 
In hopes of catching  
a queen like me,
a bounty worth collecting  
and grand shall it be...
 
They call me Witch
“Burn that Whore !”
screaming and chanting  
outside my door...
 
I have a super fast broom  
embellished with charms  
They’ll never catch me  
I’m already gone!  
 
 
Entry for make your own word competition.

What a great poem, T_V_Walker! Could you tag on after your entry the definition, please? It's more or less in the poem itself but just for formality sake.

An Ode To Muster Mark Heard Through An Earwicker

Quantumliscious Is Being Subatomically Delicious ,

And I Favor Her Flavors , As I Note Her Behaviors

Of Up , Down , Top , Bottom , Strangely Charmed ,

As Her I Woo With My Deportmanteau Not Alarmed

And Her Quarky Style Is Electrically Elementary , Particleularily

Her Spin And Degree Of Freedom Displaying Her Queendom

In Weak And Strong Interactions And Her Dynamic Color Fashion

Her Lightweight Mass Is Special In Her Relativity And Provactivity

And Her Higgs Bosom Is Just Right To Excite My Field And Yield

To Her Angular Momentum Though Not To Force Her Position

As I Seek Room Temperature Fusion Not Fission

"Just because it works doesn't mean it ain't broken.And just because it's broken doesn't mean it don't work"

It's witchcraft so it worked twice ( it was the missing link ) Just be happy three times was not the charm...LOL !

Zodiacious

/ zōdiacī + ius /

Adjective

A person who behaves stereotypically according to their Zodiac signs.

There are 12 astrology Zodiac signs in existence
It’s in our belief that our character is determined by our sign
Whether you’re as strong and confident as Aries, or shy and loving as Cancer
That’s ridiculous; you’re being zodiacious.

Whether you believe in this superstition or in the Chinese Years
It’s not an excuse for how you act
Whether you’re the life of the party like Leo or reserved and observant as Virgo
Just stop; you’re being zodiacious.

I don’t understand how people take this seriously
Every morning they read their zodiac sign
Whether you’re as down-to-Earth as Taurus or ambitious as Sagittarius
For goodness sake, stop being zodiacious!

Your character and manners are determined by your upbringing
If you have a lack in either, it’s your parents fault
Whether you’re a peace-seeker like Libra or a dreamer like Pieces
This is no excuse; you’re so zodiacious.

I don’t know what to make of these Zodiac signs
But I believe in evidence proven facts
Whether you’re versatile as Gemini or organized like Capicorn
What I understand is that you’re being zodiacious.

You can try all you want, but you won’t convince me
To accept your character simply due to your Zodiac sign
Whether you’re focused like Scorpio or innovative like Aquarius
That’s not what matters at all, stop being zodiacious!
