My Word!

Well, I never knew!

999 - A Particular Bent


Sunday Scribblings 2 prompt: bent

A Particular Bent

A fellow who shagged in a tent
Found his member distressingly bent.
He set to completing 
His genital meeting
But rather than cumming, he went.

998 - The Second Estate


Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: 

raspy, shifty, painful


The Second Estate

They give us unctuous, shifty lies
And we lap them up, whole.
Not raspy, these are silky smooth—
Words that paint a tromp l’oeil
To fool,
Fool in a hope that you’ll
Approve
Of their deceptive act.
They get rich by this enterprise
And that’s a painful fact.

Alone in Berlin

The power of words:
Alternative facts, posted,
Passive aggressive.

995 - If it ain’t bust…


Mad Kane poses a regular limerick challenge.
The key word this week is ‘bust’.

If it ain’t bust…

A lady with a magnificent bust
Caused several young fellows to lust.
But sadly her cleavage 
Was just a deceivage—
A terrible betrayal of their trust.

994 - But Hollow


Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: 

Mischievous, Nod & Obedience.


But Hollow.

Nice hair,
Pretty face,
But hollow.
A sock puppet
For the mischievous right,
The malevolent might,
Of the God set,
Who expect nothing 
But obedience
And compliance
With their bookish views
Of what is news
Of who they abuse
Of mostly don’ts
But occasional do’s.
With a deferential nod
To these darlings of God
He steps into the lights…
Nice hair,
Pretty face.

Fearful Revelations

A simple life trick:
Watch when people threaten you—
They use what they fear.
