Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Brief, Expose and Insist.
Mandate? Blind date!
It was lost, more than being won,
A voter’s stern protest.
Now they insist they have a mandate
And expose their hairy chests,
And scare the people living there.
Too late, they recoil in disbelief.
The marriage — an arranged one,
The honeymoon was brief.
