WOD Challenge 10-30-22 Be Dazzled

Word of the Day Challenge


Be Dazzled

Before we’re dazzled by the crowds

Of ghosts and goblins dressed in shrouds

We’ll put the girls in creepy britches

Let them entertain the witches

I will don a black t-shirt

The skeleton is just a flirt

Not scary really, just for fun

It won’t cause kids to scream and run

We’ll pass out candy to everyone,

If, that is, we even get one!


My t-shirt is more festive than this one 🤣

WOD Challenge 10-26-22 Action, Not Faction

In spite of all faction

I performed the swift action

Of doing my civil duty.

I exercised my right

To vote, not to fight

So I have a say, as I should.

Ignore the dissenting

And choose your own ending

Or you have no say in what matters

Do your duty and vote

Or your opinions will be bloat

And no one will care either way.

I’m lying in a hammock

Stretched between two palms

Lookin at the blue skies

Trying to forget my qualms

A drink’s in my hand

Got my right foot in the sand

Feeling just as lazy as a cat

And if you believe a word of my tail

You are as crazy as a bat!

This just came to me as I was up too early, reading blogs and trying to go back to sleep. I sure wish I was in that happy place!

Then, miraculously, I found the perfect picture accompaniment on Unsplash!

Blessed Passenger

Not exactly debonair,

suspended in air

This handsome fella followed me

For miles down the road.

His grip never faltered

over bumps, in the heat

Wind whipping at his feet

Doing his playful dance

Driving was difficult

Cause I was in a trance

Amazed at his acrobatic skill

Then, he adopted his prayerful

position, and I thought, was I

being visited by the spirit

Of my father? I took it

as a blessing but feared for

His life, in the heat, his color had changed

So I careful transported him

and I hope he lives on

To bless the next traveler

Who needs him.

There once was held a delegation

Concerning the upcoming oration

Detailing one’s future education.

The powers that be

Claimed school should be free

Thus the vote on the floor was affirmation!
