Sammi Cox is our host for the Weekend Writing Prompt.
The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
- your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below). The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
- the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.
- A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc). If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!

For years I have been familiar with ASSUME, making an ass out of U and Me, but asinine goes one step further doesn’t it.
A stupid, unintelligent and silly response to a question or statement is described as asinine, yet I bet there are some people who believe they are actually being paid a compliment because they know no better.
Yet another Ass, one in nine this time, rather than just you and me.
