The exercise:

Write a four line poem about something that is: savage.

Hmmm... at the dog park and savage as sequential prompts. Are you leading up to telling us something, Marc? :)

Those wrinkles, that dust, those heavy-lidded eyes
All convey the ravages of time.
Yet her mind is still sharp and her tongue still tells lies
About the savageness of her crime.

Greg - nah, just coincidence. Yesterday was inspired by my eating lunch in the van in Oliver while watching the comings and goings at the dog park there. I had some time to kill before picking Max up from play school and it got me wondering about the people who go there together, who randomly meet up there, what they talk about.

And Savage was inspired by another Lights song.

Really like this one. Especially the pairing of 'ravages of time' with 'savageness of her crime'. Nicely done :)
