There is a new world I’ve awaken to

Translucent, transformed,

Reticulated and blue

What happened to me

Am I out of my head

Oh shoot, there’s the floor,

I just fell out of bed

Ah, now I remember

As my stomach turns over

Too many libations

For this old treasure trover

F is for Flanagan…#AtoZChallenge2019

Flanagan was a lady’s man

At least that’s what he thought

Many a time he found himself

With his hand where it should naught

Sophia saw it straight away

With a plan to stop the gaucherie

Flanagan fell for it hook and line

‘Twas the end of his debauchery

C is for Catawampus… #NaPoWriMo2019 Day 3 and A-Z Challenge

No one took him seriously

No, they didn’t think him right

Something was amiss with him

With gun and hat and knife

But he would be the hero

When they saw just what he did

Taking down the robber, yep

The Catawampus Kid

“FASCINATE” Not so fast…

Your Daily Word Prompt

Little Leila learned to tie

Her shoes before the rest

The teacher was so very proud

To this, she did confess

Leila was tops in her class

In this, there’s no debate

So, instead of only fastening her shoes

She had to “fasten-eight”

Don’t bump the badger

When he’s sleeping.

Don’t bump the badger

When he’s mad.

You’re better off

Slapping at hornet’s nest

My friend.

Or, maybe not

Those things will sting you bad.

Perhaps in this

We find juxtaposition.

Yes, I know that word

Is really kind of cool.

Comparing a hornet’s nest

To a sleeping badger.

Well, that’s pretty dumb,

And written by a fool!
