NOTE about “ROLLIE” trilogy: It will be completed tomorrow. Couldn’t resist this prompt.
Hysterical Women Running Amok
Hysteria was once thought
to the female side
of all mankind
Said to be caused
by a “wandering uterus”
That’s why TPs think
our birth control’s ludicrous

This was for Imaginary Garden With Real Toads, courtesy of Isadora. She sent us to the Random Fact Generator, where the perfect prompt was given to me (I confess) on my third click… “TPs” are, of course, Tea Partiers!
I researched “amok” vs. “amuck,” (my original choice) and found that, in modern parlance, “amok” wins. Harrrumph. Peace, Amy

any time i find a wandering uterus i try to help it find its way home…
ah what would we do without the Tea Party protecting us?

Does a uterus wander with a little bandana tied up on the end of a stick? Does it ride the lonesome rails? Sometimes I think it’s uter-us vs. uter-them! *groan*

Sometimes I wish my uterus would wander away from me! Your poem is a timely comment on the encroaching theocracy of the US!

Wandering uterus is a woman’s privilege. It makes life more eventful and interesting! Guard it lest men might like to take it away! Nicely done Amelita!

Perfect image for this, Amy! 🙂

hey Amy – glad to see you writing ~
July 3, 2014 at 4:07 am
uterus and ludicrous – love it! Must say, never aw amuck before, whereas the work Amok is tied to some Star Trek episode from the 1960s. Good stuff.

Clever post. 🙂 Love your first verse, in particular.

If Freud was to come back as a zombie, he would probably join the TP.
Hm, someone should write a “wandering uterus” story…
Brilliant response to the prompt!

You go grrl…Amy this piece is rich with your trade mark cleverness. I especially liked the phrasing “the female side of all mankind”…you go irony so well! Thanks as always for posting to the out of standard and viva la

🙂 Hi Amy ~~ Glad a four letter work got you going here. I am glad I’m not a TPer because I wouldn’t fit the mold you made for them. Also (don’t get angry) I think the TPs themselves are running ‘amok’.
July 4, 2014 at 12:14 am
A good link for me.
July 4, 2014 at 1:03 am
You tell ’em, Amy.
Hormones have always run amok in English English! I never saw amuck before.

Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of
work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write
in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog
so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips
for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
“You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Labels to look out of the government or the CPIMaoist,
