They say I’m fat,

oh, I don’t do weight’s math.

Yes, I don’t care!

They say my nose’s flat,

oh, and I have bulky butt!

Hell, I don’t care!

They say my face’s ugly,

oh, yes I’m not pretty.

Hell, I don’t care!

Reading these words,

of fake and fallacy,

I cried.

Yes, I do care.

Day 6: Fallacy By @jdoublep

Unsound arguments. Failures of reason.

Today, let’s write poems that are wholly illogical.
Let’s see how miserably we can get reason to fail; both our reason and the reason that guides our readers.


I am not sure if I got this one, right?

Would love to hear your thoughts, Jason.

  1. Dear Rose,
    I have to say it too. Well written piece. And you really hit the button. We all say we don’t care but we actually do care and it hurts… I hope it’s not your story, no one deserves bullying. I know what I’m talking about. But that’s now four years ago. So just to tell. Well made.

    1. It is ‘somehow’ my story. The only difference is that I never cried because I care but not much. 🙂
      Thank you for your kind words. I truly appreciate it when you guys read and leave comments. ❤

  2. There is no right or wrong! The only objective was to get you to push your creative boundaries – so good work. 🙂 In revision, I’d suggest trying this piece without your final stanza – by the time we (your readers) get there, we can tell the speaker does care. Keep it up!

  3. That is a really good take on fallacy. Now I am feeling less clueless about how to tackle this one. I’m sorry you were bullied. I’m not sure anyone survived middle school/junior high without going through that or experiencing other peer created evils.

  4. It is very hard to be bullied and to not care. Or have people talk behind your back. To pretend you don’t care but you still do, but maybe if you think and say you don’t care you won’t care, but it doesn’t work that way sometimes. Great poem on fallacy. I hope it wasn’t true for you.
