Writing A Landay

I’m really glad we have Sunday’s off on the Blogging A to Z Challenge because there is no way I’d be able to come up with a subject for today’s NaPoWriMo prompt that would work in collaboration with it. Today we had to write a landay. Click on the word and it will take you to a link that explains it. It does have a form: 2 lines with the first line containing nine syllables and the second line, thirteen syllables. It comes from Afghanistan. When I read the description and some of the included landays, it brought to mind the book I read last year titled Sold by Patricia McCormick. So, my landay is in reference to that book.

 

Father drinks and gambles me away,

Sex slave I become so the barman he can pay.

 

Hope you have had a great weekend.
