Hour 21: Question of Character

after witnessing Brad beaten to a pulp

Kevin couldn’t keep shocked eyes off

the frying pan on the fire

Roger wondered why Wanda looked so happy.

  1. This made me giggle – thank you.
    I think sometimes we (us writing type peoples) have a tendency to take poetry far too seriously, I know I am very guilty of that and so it is a refreshing change to be reminded that it’s okay to have fun.

    1. I think I was feeling a bit slap happy when I wrote this one. It’s a work of desperation during the final hours. Someone — Roald Dahl (20th century) and/or Joseph Addison (18th century) — wrote this:
      “A little nonsense now and then
      Is relished by the wisest men.”

      Can we be wise women or does that not apply to us?
