Today’s poem Gambling Bug depicts how all personality types can be gamblers and was my creative way to implement the 14 random word (in bold) provided by the following Twitter players: @zg_legacies (arachnophobia), @blognetworking (passion), @wippy_ (poker), @goodyniosi (genteel), @trainlearnlead (Trust), @radityadji (palpitate), @greatgothninja (solstice), @volusiaforobama (Mormon), @kujen92 (friendship), @joannecipressi (spontaneous), @bovelett (superficial), @aluwir (endoplasmic), @besoyt (popinjay), @giuliettaspeaks (Flea)

Definitions provided by dictionary.com
Popinjay
is a person given to vain, pretentious displays and empty chatter; coxcomb; fop.

Gambling Bug

Trust in this
spontaneous friendship
passion for gamble
simply superficial

While the genteel
palpitate with worry
the poker spiders;
their arachnophobia

Solstice in the bluff
taming Mormon to popinjay
just another endoplasmic
gambling flea at large

-Poem by Justin Germino

    Awesome poem, Justin :D
     
    It is one true talent :) I like the line “passion for gamble simply superficial” the best – I think it rhymes the best :D

       @Jeevanjacobjohn Thank you, the rhyming was unintentional I usually don’t make my prose rhyme.

    • dragonblogger

      @SariJoMogol Thank you, I am flattered.

      • SariJoMogol

        @dragonblogger YW! Did I get anywhere close to what you were feeling? #poem

        • dragonblogger

          @sarijomogol Yeah, basically the addiction and underground of gambling how any genre of person from pious to cocky can fall prey.

        • dragonblogger

          @sarijomogol Mostly I just write what comes to my head without even knowing what the end result will be until it’s finished.

        • dragonblogger

          @sarijomogol Have you ever watched my video on how I create a Twitter poem? http://t.co/9KPdOOlJ gives you insight to how I work.

        • SariJoMogol

          @dragonblogger Oh! I do that with my big mouth! =D I haven’t seen ur vid, #inspirechat put the link, and I went for it, found your words :)

        • SariJoMogol

          @dragonblogger COOL Vid.Very clever. Totally educational for yourself! Show me what you can do with #circumambulate. My favorite word!

        • SariJoMogol

          @dragonblogger #TrueDat Hubris trips giants who are mostly legends before the fall anyhow. :0)

        • SariJoMogol

          @dragonblogger I meant educational for you 2 look up new words, BUT – cool poems and process you shared in your video. I can’t #Tweet&Cook

        • dragonblogger

          @sarijomogol Thanks, oh yeah I learn new words all the time. Some poems I have to look up 5-6 words to find definitions.
