Sunday Whirl (Wordle #173) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
bend, east, lane, limit, case, grain,
sound, parts, straight, water, eye, way.
Take with a grain of salty water.
Their eyes look straight at the camera,
Firm, determined and oh so sincere;
With voices rich in warm plummy sounds,
They are unbending in their cast-iron ideology
And push their case for the
Incarceration of the powerless
And the removal all limits on the powerful.
We know best.
We will protect you.
It’s good for the powerful to be more so,
The benefits will trickle down south, they say,
Like water through an aquifer,
To find its way to the lower parts, they say
Ignoring the evidence that this fiscal
Tide seems to be being diverted east and west
Into large private reservoirs
At the end of leafy private lanes.
