811 - Thou Shalt.

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: enigmatic, gruesome, and irritate.

Thou shalt.  

We love rules.
Break them,

But, by and large,
We love rules.
And are irritated,
Often irrationally,
When people break them.

Hey! You can’t do that!

Watch me.

We watch them,
Expecting the Gods,
Enigmatic and remote
At the best of times,
To smite them
For their insolence.

But they don’t.

Or do.

That’s life.

For the record 
I would like to add 
A bonus rule:
If you are desiring 
A good night’s sleep,
Do not do a Google search
For images associated with

  1. I sometimes do a Google search for the prompt word, looking for further inspiration in the images. Not always a good idea.

  2. Haha about the google search. great use of the prompts

  3. I can quite see that images associated with gruesome could challenge peaceful sleep.
    Love your wordsmithery.

  4. It's best just not to do a Google search before retiring to bed...because you could still be amidst of it hours later - the search that is, not bed!

  5. Yes, cut out the scary bits and sleep well!


  6. Brilliant! Loved the last punch! :D


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