I confess

For today’s prompt, write a conspiracy poem.

I confess

I’m the anonymous Q dropping
whatever crap will get 4chan hard
and laughing as the gullible
savor every poorly worded crumb

It’s easy once you learn the trick
“disinformation is necessary”
every wrong prediction becomes intentional
part of the trusted plan

I was also a member of the Illuminati
but got excommunicated— not killed
they just set me up with a boring job
a blog and a lifetime supply of irrelevance

Quote me and I’ll deny it
This is just poetic license

  2. So clever. Like the font by the way. You know I love me some excommunication!!! Oh lord, yes, there could be nothing worse. And the lifetime of irrelevance. Well done, Sir!! Very well done.

    Deny, deny, deny, delay and deny. Great ending as well.
