Challenge from Glenda Funk: Write an echo sonnet. (I made my echos hashtags).
None of us have spirited family Christmases with characters like these – I repeat: this is all fictional (required disclaimer). But for our friends who do, here is…..a holiday hashtag echo sonnet with 14 plus one more…….a solution.
Sleighfully Navigating a Spirited Family Christmas
Self-proclaimed “Mother-of-the-Year” stepsister mommy shaming another?
Philandering uncle’s womanizing making you sick?
Cheap-ass brother not bearing a gift?
Political hothead brother-in-law TRUMPeting his lies?
Know-it-all cousin crowing all he knows?
Holier-than-thou stepfriend “blessing your heart?”
Perfect pink princess sister-in-law going to town?
Meddling mother-in-law business-poking?
Freeloading stepbrother eating everyone’s lunch?
Gossiping father spewing venom?
Bragging niece going yackety-yak?
Stumbling drunk nephew landing in laps?
All 17 spoiled grandkids acting high class?
Manipulative aunt controlling the back porch?
The best way through the Christmas fog?
