The Eternal Challenge (Prompt: Challenge Poem)


Throw down the gauntlet
I’ve drawn a line in the sand

I dare you
I double dare you
I double dog dare ya
I triple dog dare ya

you’re yella
you’re a chicken
you ain’t got the stones
why don’t you grow a pair?

knock this off my shoulder
stand up for yourself
shit or get off the pot
what’s it gonna be?

you ain’t man enough
put on your big girl pants
don’t take another step
I’ll slap your ass
into the middle of next week.

if you loved me, you would
oh yeah?
you and what army?

come over here and say that
smile when you say that

I’ll drop your ass like a bad habit

go ahead, make my day
feelin’ lucky, punk?

  2. Don't fall for those words!! You are older and wiser.....(and I know you wouldn't now.) There are a lot of tricksters out there.

  3. Not me - throw down the gauntlet and I'll pick it up and hand it back to you. :)

  4. Ha! I have two daughters, and though I'm mother not father, I definitely know the feelings so very well-expressed here~ K.
