Giving Up Rhyming For A Year

I think, for the year, I will write in prose only; no rhyme and no meter, no scansion, no verse. Iambic pentameter? Perish the notion! We’ll see if my writing gets better… or worse. A year without sonnets, or ballads, or limericks; a year without couplets or bad villanelles; a year when my thoughts must …

Ken Ham Clearly Doesn’t Believe (I Hope)

What Would Peter Do? Denying Jesus For Political Gain

I hear the baby Jesus cried To hear His name so oft denied— The cross (for which we all give thanks) Is merely “intersecting planks”; The sacred scene, nativity? “A plastic Jewish family” That baby, in the manger’s hay?
