Love “Stinks” (A Trifecta Challenge)

Cupid’s a terrible aim.

Some say the affliction stinks-

I agree.

The object of my unrequited


deflector of my


rebuffs my


Mon amour-

a gorgeous kitty.


A lonely skunk.


TrifectaPicture11-1This is my silly response to the Trifecta weekly writing prompt.  I’ve been absent for a couple weeks for this challenge but figured I could handle 33 words.  But you can be the judge of that.  No, really, you’re the judge because it’s a community vote week 🙂

You have 48 hours from when the challenge closes on Thursday to vote for your favorite.  Click on the tricycle image to check out other entries- or even better- submit your own!

Here’s the challenge:  this week we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words about love gone wrong.  But we’re asking that you not use any of the following words:  love; sad; tears; wept; heart; pain.

My poem is written from the POV of Pepé Le Pew- one of my favorite Looney Tunes characters!  Poor guy did everything he could to woo his lady love, not realizing that she was a kitty, not a skunk.   I’d post a photo, but don’t want to be busted by the copyright police 😛

Thanks for reading – have a great Monday!
