Defamation of Characters

.
Even my metaphors are complaining
of too much work. The commas
think they rule and the full stops
are at war with the semi full stops.
.
Even the images are exhausted
from overwork and reworkings, so
a holiday for poetic elements
is declared. The challenge is to write
a poem without a verb, a comma,
or a period.
.
No nouns allowed, no adjectives.
It will be a short poem. All the
elements of style are on strike
so the field is pretty empty. No
adverbs, pronouns, or conjunctions.
Taboo are the prepositions as well.
.
Good luck. Oh, bye the bye,
no slipping in gerunds or other
verb forms. We are watching.
