Sunday Whirl (Wordle #153) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
sting, grind, natural, addition, plenty, warning,
rival, course, quartet, broken, response, blunt
A Blunt Quartet
To change is a natural desire,
To leave the daily grind;
We gladly jump from pan to fire,
To see what we will find.
All warnings are ignored, of course,
The rival camp seems warmer;
Not a response to a better force,
Just weary with the former.
The morning after is a sobering place,
Of crudely broken dreams.
With plenty of regrets we have to face
As we realise what it means.
There’s additional pain, both sharp and cruel,
Of this brave new spring—
As a nation we voted for these fools,
And therein lies the sting.
