hordes of employees

see auricles expand

beyond proportion

to internalise


of Boss-oracles.


appraisals see

cash being hoarded

by those

who have whored their way

sacrificing values

and self-respect.


Loyalty is rewarded

while capability


awaits its turn

or silently,

gives up


Saturday Mix- Double Take Challenge

The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our homophone sets this week are:

auricle – external part of the ear
oracle – seer


hoard – a great stash
horde – a great many people
whored – prostituted
