Too Write a Wrong

Gone are the days of princesses
And nights in shining armor
Lost in a whirled of gigabytes
And sights that no know honor.

Two bare won’s arms too write a wrong,
To mete and then make marry,
Are principals that rain no moor,
Gone with a morning ferry.

Homophone total: 17 (not including the prompt lines and title)

I had a good chuckle reading all of the responses to the Prompt: Homophone Misuse. If you would like to add the homophone total like I did with mine, please let me know in the comments. Thank you to all who responded! And it is never too late to submit an entry for any of the challenges. You can even submit more than once. πŸ™‚

(Side note: The title of the prompt was initially published as “Homophone Abuse,” but then I realized that as a children’s author, I shouldn’t be abusing anything, even homophones. Sigh. So many things to be cautious about now. Am I allowed to kill mosquitoes?)

  1. could’ve done “gone with a mourning ferry”

    1. But the fairy is mourning because she is sad 😦

      1. Ah. I sea, I sea

  2. Interesting form. Looks fun!

    1. It’s fun to write! Even if it makes no sense to anyone else lol. πŸ™‚

  3. Way Cool!

    I had to LOL because I’ve twinkled with those words once upon a time….lol.

    I’ve learned a new word, Homophone!

    1. The first commenter misread it as “homophobe,” which peaked her interest lol. πŸ™‚

      1. I actually thought the would be homophobe …I was totally slapped on the face when I read homophone. πŸ˜‚

        1. Lol it’s entirely appropriate that the word homophone would be mistaken for something else πŸ™‚

      2. Thanks for your comment for my poem, Unfriended. I don’t know why it disappeared….

        1. Hmm that is strange. It “uncommented” me on your “unfriended” poem.

    2. The first commenter for the prompt, that is, not for this one hehe.

  4. Well played and well done πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very kindly! πŸ™‚

  5. Oh that was excellent!! I didn’t understand we were supposed to use as many as we could! You did that wonderfully!!!

    1. You could use as many or as few as you wanted, as long as you could squeeze at least one in. Yours was wonderfully coherent with just the right amount of homophonic seasoning. Mine became incoherent with too many homophones. πŸ™‚

  6. Clever lady! I really wanted to write one but couldn’t come up with one when I had time to write. I’ll save the prompt and hopefully find the words.

    1. I’ll be waiting eagerly to read your words when you find them! πŸ™‚

  7. So many homophones trying each of them to make sense, eventually they did. Well done

    1. LOL that you even put the effort in to make them make sense I am truly grateful for πŸ™‚

  8. Can someone call on my sell, I think I left it at Blew House

    1. Lol eye think yew knead two get a gnu sell!

      1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’œπŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ‰

      2. Lol… This was two fun. Yes, I need to by a knee sale phone. Hopefully, I can find one on Cell.

          1. This is definitely putting a smile on my face! πŸ˜† Thank You for this CubbyπŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ’œ

            1. I’m glad it made you smile! πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΈπŸ’š

              1. Me too!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ’œ

  9. Hahaha! Nice one, Cubby! And all the responses are great too. Kudos to you and all the participants! πŸ’•πŸ˜„

  10. You are funny, talented and charming. Loved it

    1. You are too kind. I’m glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

  11. Homophobe always make me think of Oliver Hart: How Eye One The Write Too Think by Eyedea. It’s a great album if you like Hip-Hop. And Between The Lions. It’s a show for kids. They had Brian McKnight singing about how much he loves homophones.

    You did a wonderful job with this. It’s goofy and silly and still sneakily poignant.

    1. That first word was supposed to be… You know. Who made the B & N neighbors?

      1. B & N = Barnes & Noble? I think I’m missing something here.

        1. I typed homophobe instead of homophone, which I was blaming on the B & N being next to each other.

          1. Ahhh, now I get it. I can be really dense sometimes. πŸ€”

    2. HA! I’ve never heard of that album, but it sounds fun. I’m glad you could make sense out of the complete gibberish that resulted in overloading on homophones. πŸ™‚

      1. “How Much Do You Pay?” is a great song from the album, but it’s not fun. There are some fun songs, a lot of sadness, too. It’s my kind of album.

        Obviously, it makes sum kind of since, at least two me.

        1. Sounds interesting. I prefer listening to classical music, or what I call “sleepy time” music.

          1. I like some Classical. I like lyrics, though. Sometimes, when I write, I’ll put on Jazz. I love Miles Davis. That way the lyrics don’t distract me.

            1. Your mind is always trying to make sense of the lyrics it hears, even when you are trying to ignore the words, which is why lyrics are so distracting for a writer and the reason I cringe when I see students studying while listening to music with words.

              1. Kids are good at ignoring things.

                1. On the surface, yes, but I think they take in a lot more than we realize.
