I tried and found the prompt too difficult. Making a serious epitaph for a hilarious cause of death was too much at odds with each other.

Nah, I think we all just forgot about it. Ian, why don't you nominate someone to set the next exercise, if you want to carry on.

And... this is the original post sporting a date-stamp retread... let's see if anyone's still awake ... hey, forget about global implosions and explosions, escapism over here --


Today’s exercise requires the composition of a 12 line poem in three stanzas.
The rhyme scheme is abcd – abcd – efgg. The good news is that no end-line rhymes are allowed, only internal rhyme somewhere in the line. (I suppose one can put a rhyming word at a line’s end provided the rhyming partner is internal.) Meter is optional. 

The following words must be used somewhere in the poem. Create your own title. 

Blue
Waiting
Stab
Eyes
Fire
Regret/s

Post in this thread. No personal edits allowed once posted. General crits and comments are encouraged. I’ll pick the poem I like most and that person can set the next exercise.
Deadline is 24 hours from the time of this post.
Deal?
