Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were lame, terse and co-operate.
A Terse Reply
of needless dead—
“Freedom has a price to pay”
That's what the generals said.
“It’s sad we’ve ruined all you had—”
“Some day, the courts will ask you why—“
“Cooperation will be token”
Came back the terse reply.
