Achilles’ Heel

Indian Bloggers


Its April of 2017 and Day 01 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Idiom a day and 8 line poem for the idiom.

Idiom: Achilles’ Heel

Meaning: a vulnerable spot or weakness, a small problem or weak point in someone who is otherwise perfect

No obsession in love,
No folly in friendship,
No tiredness after work,
No dreams in life,
No aye, No nay,
No teeter-totter,
Is not Achilles’ heel,
But Achilles’ body.

  1. That’s an excellent theme Prakash, I actually didn’t know that was what Achilles heels meant. Thanks for that . I have a feeling I’m going to be learning a lot from yours. All the best.

      If there is no obsession in love, … then all those lines that follow… It’s not a small weakness, It’s a major one! Like Major major one! That’s the take away! πŸ™‚

  3. Idiom: A Doubting Thomas
    Meaning: A skeptical who needs physical or personal evidence in order to believe something.

    A doubting Thomas drunk with power
    The slimeball turns friends into foes
    The half-witted valet adds fuel to the fire
    Plays pranks wherever he goes.

  4. […] Dangerous places, I cant resist, One day, maybe, my downfall. . Diabetes, many years a struggle, One day, maybe, my downfall. . My wifes’ truelove, cant live without, One day, maybe, my downfall. . My Achilles’ heel, never a problem, One day, maybe, my downfall. . My opinion, outspokenness, One day, maybe, my downfall. . My unintentional libel, One day, maybe, my downfall. . My poetry, well I truly hope, Well maybe, just a tad delightful. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Β© Mick E Talbot 2016/66 Achilles’ Heel […]
