Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: aspire, beast and slurp.
The Silver Trough.
When they first aspire to govern,
Bright-eyed and oh-so keen,
I believe they feel a calling,
‘Til they meet the party machine.
Any urge to cure our ills
The faithful, I know, will scoff,
But the beasts patrol the coven
And slurp from the silver trough.
