Of Misery and Goddesses on Contraception

Limbs broken,
the horror writer ripped Misery
out of the pains of his pen.

Freedom raped,
the witchy writer summoned “Goddesses on Contraception
out of her laptop’s threatened womb.

It’s fact,
life pumps words into fictions—
live, read, write.

inspired by this Amazing Fact Generator’s quote: “Like the character he wrote about in Misery, both of Stephen King's legs were broken in a 1999 accident.”

  5. I have to admit, it's stretching it a bit to suggest corporations are people who have feelings and religious convictions. I mean, I deal with fantasy on a daily basis but really...

    1. I didn't either. After I was done writing for the prompt I went back to read more facts in the sight--it was quite addicting, lol!

  8. Yes, this is witty as is the cartoon… but I can't say I agree with the cartoons message. (but that's OK, I still laughed :) (I think I'm the only conservative/semi-republican poet in this world :) ha ha

    1. I can't resist asking, how would a "conservative/semi-republican poet" describe/explained the "message" illustrated by this cartoon?

  12. Magaly, unbelievable, we both hit on the same subject from two different viewpoints. LOVE the power of the laptop's womb; it's true, life does spring forth from it! Yours is amazing. The comic only added to the power of it. I walked into Hobby Lobby and told the manager to pass it up the food chain: "If you still cover Viagra, you are doubled damned." Ha ha. Amy via Toads

    1. I would have paid to see/hear you tell the manager your piece of truth. What nerves! How can they have their cake and eat it, too? I don't agree with denying care to one person based on someone else's religious views, but if they want to be ignorant at least be consistent about it.

      I bet the manager's expression was priceless!

  13. :) Your poem is right on, Magaly, and so is the cartoon. I am still smiling (the thought that I'm glad they don't still burn witches came to my mind). :)

    1. It's nice to know that although certain part of our population is composed of ignorant people who refuse to accept that the world is not just theirs, some of the old barbarities are now a thing of history... in most of the world. We can only hope for better.
