Six words
 
I'm in a rut of ennui so I was thinking an exercise in six words might be entertaining. A while back, I stumbled across "Six Word Memoirs" which was a very nice collection of pithy almost-poetry almost-memoir by everyday folks - see http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/

So, if you have six words about life here or, whatever, in whatever language you choose, share them :) It's fun, or maybe I'm just so bored that my idea of fun is a bit on the square side....

Switzerland, Schweiz, Suisse, Svizzera or Svizra
Just call it what you will
But for goodness sake not 'Swiss'.

Re: Six words
 
A variation is to build the poem/memoir using the six words, but in pyramid form. IE: first word must contain one letter, second word has two, up to the sixth word having six letters.
