So apparently I clocked out of writing for nearly a month, oops. Anyhow, De over at DVerse, the poets pub, challenged us to write a quadrille (a 44 word poem) using the word “fix”, well it’s a fix if you ask me, and you ain’t going to convince me otherwise. God check out what the other fabulous poets have written

It’s a fix
What can you do
The whole world
Out to get you
Chasing your tail
For a buck or two
Not able to see
What is true
In your Dead end job
You just stew
It’s a fix
What can you do?

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment

  1. Nice take on “fix”

  2. We do appear to be boxed in by our choices right now don’t we.

  3. Nice description of some jobs: “Not able to see
    What is true
    In your Dead end job”

  4. I also agree that this is a good take on the prompt. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I like the way this wraps back into itself, like a conundrum that just goes round and round. Life is like that sometimes…

    • Especially in a dead end job, working to make money that you can’t enjoy because you’re working, and yet the money vanishes anyway. glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the comment

  6. I guess, sometimes we just do what we have to do, it may be a short term fix with the hope a permanent change will occur.

  7. Oh I think there are lots of things to do to verse yourself some stars in the dun space of daywork

  8. Face it as it comes, I usually try. Nice write.

  9. I like the repetition of “it’s a fix”, for some reason the poem feels like a song to me.

    • The first thing that popped into my head when I read the prompt was Elbow’s song “The Fix”, so that may have influenced me. Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed it
