Oh, forty-seven, you are cowards!
May your shadows swallow you – then spit you out again!
Linked to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie, where the form for the week at BJ’s Shadorma and Beyond is the Landay – an Afghan folk couplet – usually oral, often bawdy and/or piercing – dealing with themes such as love, war, grief, separation, and homeland. The first stanza is 9 syllables; the second is 13 syllables.
A HUGE thank you goes to Dom at Black and Write for introducing me to this form!
