Jenny Matlock hosts this weekly meme. Thank you! J
Her challenge to participants is to use the prompt and up to 100 more words to produce a piece of writing in any style. This week’s objective is to write in rhyme! Click here to read more and perhaps be inspired to join in! The prompt is in red italics.
I’m not a chicken that clucks and pecks
All day in the dusty yard,
Munching on pellets and small insects
And sometimes on fresh Swiss chard.
I am a bird of a kind, though now
I’m fairly long in the tooth –
More like an outmoded house Frau
Is rather nearer the truth.
Time was I was quite a neat young chick
But the years and the kids took their toll;
I think I’m becoming quite stoic
And life’s pretty good on the whole.
