828 - Where roses are grown.

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: sedate, righteous, and pathetic.

Where roses are grown.

We sit where the roses are grown,
Sipping our herbal teas,
And from these sedate, safe places
Construct our enemies.

“Don’t fuss.”
“Not one of us.”

A pathetic excuse
To righteously bomb those who own
The things we want to use.

  1. Sublimely written J Cosmo - how easy to forget the faces of those we destroy in order to sip 'our' tea in the garden...

  2. Sometimes 'not one of us' is a compliment.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
