Breaking News ~ Theft in the Garden
















Toad Garden invaded by
pilfering plagiarism,
a light fingered bandit
handy with a right click
copied another’s words
to paste as his/her own.

Details are sketchy, but
there are rumors of confessions,
pointing fingers, and
the victim leading authorities
on a foot chase through the
New Orleans’ French Quarter.

Poetry experts are examining
the original poem and the supposed
copy for clues to the identity of the thief.

Reporters are on the scene
and we will update as soon
as there is any new information.

Herotomost over in the Real Toads garden has us writing about poetry thievery.  I chose not to identify the thief, but Herotomost's sudden departure to the Big Easy has me suspicious. :)

I love your approach to this challenge, Susie. The way media hypes everything these days gives one pause, and your parody is spot on.

I love it! With social media always on top of the occasion -it was a perfect way to approach your poem!
