Crimson’s Creative Challenge #141 “A poor boy whose story’s often told”

Here’s the story of Nathaniel Quinn

he never did learn how to swim

one day at the lakeside he fell in

and though everyone was looking for him

they never did find poor Nathaniel Quinn

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #133 “Mummy knows what’s best.”

Mummy duck and baby duck

were going for a walk

suddenly from up above

they heard a loud squawk

quickly dear, said mummy duck

come in and get close to me

for if that big bird sees you

he will take you home for tea

but the silly little duckling

didn’t do what his mummy said

so the greedy seagull in the sky

swooped down and carried him off instead

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #118 The ancient pathway

You may think this a tranquil scene

but do take care as things unseen

may lurk behind each bush or tree

looking out for the unwary

or lone traveller on the path

who might feel the fairies’ wrath

if their charges they don’t pay

that they may safely pass their way.

Ronovan writes #Decima #Poetry challenge #38 The boxer’s tale

A story I just need to tell

may be of interest to you

or not, no matter, just we two

will know the tale of how I fell

into the realm of personal hell.

It started on that fateful night

when I received my first invite

to make a large amount of cash

so I thought I’d have a bash

I only had to win the fight.

Taking just one sip

from the cup of tainted love,

leaves a bitter taste.
