Sunday Whirl (Wordle #149) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
eggs, trust, test, not, high, course, peep,
mug, trial, form, bring, blown, stick
The Life Saver
Popular wisdom says that you shouldn’t
Put all your eggs in one basket.
But what if you only have one basket?
It is an act of blind trust
To board an old fishing boat
And set course for a foreign land.
But the decision is not hard
When the horror being left behind
Is greater than the unknown
That lies ahead.
Do you stick it out?
Watch your life and loved ones
Be blown apart?
It is really a case of all or nothing.
Save what eggs you can.
As we sit in our
With our mugs of organic tea
Watching the TV shows that let us
Peep into the fake lives
And contrived high drama
Of fictional people
It is worth remembering
The real trials of real people
The horrible form these trials take
And the desperation
That has driven them
To leave the land of their fathers
In search of safety.
It is a test of our humanity
That we are willing to provide
