They never showed up

to watch the king come down

and take his crown

for it was false.

It sat upon a head so bald

his mouth wide in a clown’s smile

rivulets of black mascara

tracking down his cheeks.

One group crowded to the front

making it seem larger

for thin it was.

No one wanted him

no one……

but the fools

who capered and pranced

while the king did dance

and an effigy burned in the park.

Bedtime Stories for Insomniacs.

What a fabulous idea! Go on over and check her out and if interested let Britchy know by commenting on her actual post.

Bitchin’ in the Kitchen

I was looking through my reader and I realised how many fabulous writers I’m following. Seriously guys, I’m in awe of your writing. You’re saving me a fortune in books (until you all get published and then I will need a second job!)

I thought it would be fun to take a title and see where we all take the idea. It can be a picture, a six word story, a serious article, a poem, a nice long story – the choice is yours!

I’d like to do this on Wednesdays every week and then share everyone’s stories/poems/picture stories the following Wednesday. You can email them to me by Tuesday night but please add a comment on this post so I don’t lose/miss any!

The title we have for the first challenge is:

Archie Goes To War

I hope you take part!!
