Reena’s Xploration Challenge #223

Welcome back!


I want to pull you out of your comfort zone this week.

Play the Devil’s Advocate for a change.

The theme is NO MERCY.

Write whatever comes to mind.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap. 

Any post that is found to be offensive, vulgar or something that hurts common sensibilities will not be included. This needs to be a safe space.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

The feminists, humanists and individualists amongst you are welcome to follow us at

purple regal and royal
ashes scattered

Birds of A Feather
to colour us all tanned
black or white
didn’t seem right
even a humorous sight
maybe blue and green
would’ve been a better blight
and I’ve been told orange
is a preferred skin tone
best we have more colours
I’ll go buy the paint drums
toss them together
shaken, not stirred
into one huge cocktail dish
and use a whale-hair paint brush
we’ll all be covered the same
a faded colour purple
like tarnished rain clouds

not too dark
not too proud
not too white
just bright enough
to see the light
