Cheers, poetical bar hoppers! De, here. It’s time again for what is quickly becoming my new favorite challenge: the Quadrille.

We want a poem of exactly 44 words, including a word we provide.

So far for Q44, we’ve danced…we’ve lulled. Today, I want us to


Bubble over with excitement. Blow bubbles. Grab some bubble gum. In other words, include the word “bubble” as one of your 44 words, using it as a noun, a verb, or an adjective. Your choice. You can even use a variation: bubbling, bubbled, bubbly. Just be sure you stick to exactly 44 words, including your bubble.
