Blah Performance: Random Twitter Poem for Apr 26th

Blah Performance paints a picture of a once high and mighty actress or opera singer well past her prime and unable to capture an audience after falling reviews. This poem was inspired by the 11 word submissions (in bold) provided by the following Twitter players:
@rodicka (ubiquitous), @L00ty (discontent), @PaulTheGerman (Diva), @TechnicallyEasy (Jumping), @ptaylor98 (twilight), @DebraUlrich (Word), @sfihomebizz (perfect), @chrystieowens (create), @dramatic99 (blah), @peace_luver3596 (decadent), @Sakshikumar (sleep)

Blah Performance

Decadent ubiquitous diva
forever discontent, jumping
each vocal performance succeeds
only in invoking perfect sleep
shining career now in twilight
able to create applause no more
the last reporter’s word final
this was a “blah” performance

-Poem by Justin Germino

    Delightfully snarky poem about would-be divas :P. You managed to get me to chuckle at the final slap of irony. I’m developing a blog roll on my site, once its finished, you will definitely grace the page. Twitter is one muse that certainly does keep on giving ‒ keep up the marvelous work!
