Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #544

This is a writing prompt. Bet you can’t do it! Take the 10 random words below and crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story! And remember: after (if) you finish entering your submission into the comment field, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.) NOTE: Our bolding plugin is gone, so you’ll have to put before and after each of your challenge words if you want them to stand out, but NOT REQUIRED THOUGH! Or, as cleverly done by a CCC-er you can CAPITALIZE the challenge words in your piece.

  1. Sedition
  2. Metropolis
  3. Perished
  4. Piety
  5. Ranking
  6. Sprawling
  7. Rickety
  8. Amiss
  9. Cradle of Democracy

    The heavy hand of sedition rocked the rickety cradle of Democracy with enough force to send Lady Liberty sprawling atop the teeming masses of the metropolis. Though freedom perished with security, nothing seemed amiss, until the anarchists turned their sights on the symbols of piety.

    Church shootings were out of style. Publicly shaming their ranking officials was more effective at undermining the intrinsic power of divine right, which was the root of autocracy, in the first place.

    My emotional METROPOLIS went crashing,
    SPRAWLING in a muddled mess of tears and stutters.
    It was built on RICKETY foundations.
    Not that I knew until too late.
    Ignorant or unseeing, I missed the cues.
    I sensed nothing absent or AMISS
    And love PERISHED right there in front of me.

    Your silent SEDITION stronger than any hate speech,
    My marital PIETY was revealed for what it was;
    A nod to the ideal with no thought for the man,
    Security RANKING more highly than love.
    My CRADLE OF DEMOCRACY was a fraud.
    You’ve claimed your freedom
    And in good conscience, I must let you go.
