774 - Fragments

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: jovial, promise, and resolute.


A pizza without any anchovy’ll
Be scorned by the cognoscenti;
The Maffia, never particularly jovial,
Will demand anchovies a-plenty.

Everything has promise.

New Year’s a time of reflection,
Seldom sober, often in sorrow.
Resolute, we chart the ‘better us’’—
But can we hold off until tomorrow?

  1. Hairy fish? Bleah. Even before I turned vegetarian I avoided them like the plague.
    I think my better self has seen better days. And is probably gone...

  2. I don't know about having hairy fish on my pizza. I mean I am a great fan of pizza. Probably up there next to the likes of Mikey, Donny, Raph and Leo, but anchovies are not for me. Now I am hungry.

  3. For somethings yes..for others no...its' all about how we spend today I suppose..happy new year to you J Cosmo!

  4. That is very good ~ A great respose to the prompt ~ :)

  5. Good question, my friend! Can we, if maybe get motivated?

  6. I love anchovies! And I love anchovies on pizzas. And I never make resolutions! And anchovies are not hairy!!


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