(Fiction) Friday --Something's afoot

This Week’s Theme: Afoot

Something's afoot, I must say
not one child's shown up to play

not one tired man has cracked a beer
not one young girl has shed a tear

Something's afoot, I had heard
not one cat has caught a bird

not one dog has chewed a bone
not one cat has remained alone

Something's a foot, I do declare
not one dragon is in his lair

Oops. . .

. . . RUN!


So , these silly words are mine, please do not waste our time by copying them.

When it's quiet in the house, that's when the game's afoot. :)

Definitely not nonsense - fun! Cute little poem and a creative use of our challenge word for this week. Enjoyed it. Lyn from Bloggin' Outloud

I like the rhythm of this piece - of cause this can pretty much continue on and on

Marcia (MeeAugraphie) said...

Lissa - I got caught up in the rhythm writing it and had to force myself to stop coming up with more things that weren't right. LOL. Thanks for commenting.

Tammi said...

And it is a very catchy rhythm, too. Nice to see some poetry, especially one that is humorous.

That was great, lol! Love the unexpected "dragon" ending!

pjd said...

Very Shel Silverstein! This is fun and has a great ending just when you're wondering where it's going. I'm glad you didn't put any more in than you have. It's just about perfect as is.

Sue "Sioux" Seibert said...

That poem is wonderful and should be published!

Marcia (MeeAugraphie) said...

Rose Dewey Knickers - Yes, quiet would speak of that, too.

Paisley - I like that you said snappy!

Garth Trekker - I haven't gotten to read how creative everyone else got with that word yet, but I will get to them all tomorrow, can't wait!

Tammi - I am glad you saw the humor in it!

Sue "Sioux" Seibert - Why, thank you, if only you were a publisher!

Thank all of y'all for commenting on this!
