941 - Gone Cuckoo

Sunday Scribblings 2 prompt: forbidding

Gone Cuckoo

Convicted porridge thief, Miss Goldilocks,
Wore flannel nightgowns and thick socks.
Her forbidding stare
Could curl your hair
And scare the cuckoos out of their clocks.

    1. Hi Good Lookin', fancy going out for a spin?

    2. Yep, as long as there's no frightening involved:)

    3. Careful! He has more arms than Donald Trump!

  2. She was also a chair breaking vandal. And a bed hog.

  3. My wife got this new alarm clock
    Our mornings were greeted with shock
    Sweet dreams were reduced
    By noise it produced
    Till I introduced it to rock

    (a 6/5 limerick. 6 rhymes in 5 lines)

  4. Always felt that way way about the porridge thief. Now don't tell me I have got to start knitting socks for the cuckoos again!


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