Samscribbles weekend writing prompt, “Bold favours the brave.”

The girl sitting in the window was curvaceous
but the price she required seemed audacious
I could imagine her act would be vivacious
my ideas for the evening quite salacious
and to haggle I would need to be tenacious
although her profession would make her rapacious
if I were lucky she might turn out to be gracious
surprised that I would try to be so boldacious
that my efforts would prove efficacious

to pin their colours to the mast

and openly declare intent

to stand up for the government

in firm belief our lives may change

after they introduce the range

of vaccines for our safety meant

Crispina’s Creative Challenge #113

The tower stands in dark of night

guiding the sailor by its light

and when the shroud of fog comes down

ears are strained to the mournful sound

of the deep-throated siren’s blast

ensuring vessels may safely pass
