BAD POETRY PENANCE #4

Alas! We’ve come to the end of Bad Poetry Penance for this week.

Remember, anyone can join in – any time. This will be an occasional feature – whenever we’ve got a few to share. And folks can always share their recorded bad poetry over on the Going Public Facebook page – just post right to the wall, or in the comments on a BAD POETRY PENANCE post. Just be sure to put BAD POETRY PENANCE somewhere in the title of your post and audio file :)

BAD POETRY PENANCE #3

More BAD POETRY PENANCE!

I’ve been a delinquent, a layabout, a lout…I’ve rebelled against delivering on my promised…so it’s time for penance! And when I confessed to the Twitterverse that I had no poetry-writing skill, author Kevin Hearne came to the rescue with a tweeted, truly atrocious poem.

..and so BAD POETRY PENANCE (BBP for short) was born!

Introducing…BAD POETRY PENANCE!

Introducting a new feature here at Going Public…BAD POETRY PENANCE!

Friday the 13th!…of March

A SECOND Friday the 13th? In a row??

Wow. What did we all do in our collective past lives to warrant that?

 

Oh! Before I forget…reminder that if you’d like to join in the fun, just record your piece (public domain or with express permission of the author only please), post it to SoundCloud, and shoot me (Xe) the link via email at voxology(at)xesands(dot)com.

 

Let’s see…getting this out a bit late (did you NOT notice it was Friday the 13th last Friday? Total chaos! Destruction! The horror! The horror! Er…which means Going Public was a wee bit delayed…)…but to make up for it, we’ve got some nifty pieces for you…enjoy!

 

Bright Horizons – Part 5, by Maevyn Davis-Rackerby

[Bright Horizons Playlist – parts added as released]

Continuing our 10-week journey…a dark one, as we join our unreliable narrator, Jax as they try to make sense of what’s happening to them, both inside and out, just what kind of place they’ve found themselves in, and what the hell is wrong with Bright Horizons.

Written by Maevyn Davis-Rackerby during junior high for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program in 2011, it’s my privilege to be allowed to try and do it justice.

Tom Jones, Book XII, Chapter 10, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 12 Chapter 10 of Tom Jones.

This is part of an ongoing project in which I will record and post one chapter per week of Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones over the course of four years.

In this chapter, Jones shares a drink with the lawyer Mr. Dowling. We are reminded that Dowling is the lawyer who delivered the news of the death of Miss Bridget Blifil years before. Tom tells Dowling his whole story, and Dowling concludes that there must be more at work in Blifil’s character assassination than Tom is aware of. Tom doesn’t pay him much heed, though, and rides off into the rainy night as soon as his horses are ready.
