The Mantra of Modern Victimhood

By Brannan K.Published about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read

Overzealous, ostentatious, often obtuse opining.

Outwardly obsequious, oblivious objectifying.

Optimism obligatory, openly opaque.

Obfuscation, observations, omissions obviate.

Omerta! Oathbreakers!

Ostensibly obtrusive!

Ousted or outlawed or ostracized.

Obey. Okay?

Obsolete outcry, obsolete outright.

Ogling our offensiveness? Obscene.

Omnipresent oppression occupies our obsession!

Occult orchestrations obscuring oppositions.

Outlandish obituaries outlast oaths.

    This is clever, I've never had a go at this form of poetry. It Dauntsey me a bit! I don't think I could even think of that many O words, let alone string them together to make sense.

    I love this one! There are so many great lines but I think my favorite is actually the simplest. “Obey. Okay?” It works so well amid all the complexity!

  • Gosh this was so deep and thought provoking! You did an awesome job on this!

    This was wonderfully crafted. I really enjoyed the cadence and flow. You did such a great job building momentum with the rhyming and structure, and despite the letter constraints, it felt like performance poetry. Clever subject as well :)
