  2. Thanks I'mnotaverse; I didn't use a prompt, just thought of words prefixed by 'second' and came up with this.

  5. I, too, missed it first time around [sic], but I'm blaming that lapse on lack of a caffeine buzz.

    Cool write, now that I get it.

  8. Aha!!! Words prefixed by 'second' makes for a very clever poem, although I admit I didn't get it until I read the comments!

  9. And seconds later, Amy posted to say, YES! This is a great poem. Stan, so glad to see you and thanks for visiting me. Didn't you contribute to Poetic Asides? Think that's where I first read you.

    To me, I felt the angst of a job interview and of the limited chances folks have... but that's just me. Amy

  10. Does this mean that tomorrow you will do thirds?
    Great idea, Stan, I think it hangs together well,

    Amy; Or it may have been NaPoWriMo 2010.
    Elizabeth; You sussed me out!

  12. I am glad for the explanation or I may have come up with my own conclusions, which sometimes can be quite wrong. Nice write, Stan.
