October Madness Challenge #3

Today's challenge from Britney, which is right up my alley.

Challenge #3

Today's challenge involves poetry. Wait! Don't run away! It'll be fun. I promise. Poetry is a great way to stretch your writing skills. Just give it a try.

1. Grab a dictionary.

2. Randomly open up to a page and point at a word.
3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 two more times.
4. Take your 3 words and use them to create a haiku.

She's seen haikus appear EVERYWHERE lately, so she thought this could be fun! For the purpose of this challenge, we're just using the most basic rules of a haiku: 3 lines. Line one has 5 syllables. Line two has seven. Line three has 5.

My three words are: malarkey, pundit, and egregious...
malarkey: insincere or foolish talk
pundit: a person who gives opinions in an authoritative manner usually through the mass media
egregious: archaic: distinguished

Egregious writer
pundit facet your manner
malarkey you spout
