Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #283 #Customs and practices

Though the clocks have been put back one hour

I hope it will not affect adversely our

custom whereby we British pour

ourselves a cup of tea around four

on each weekday afternoon

often in the drawing room

although this demonstration of English taste

seems to have been rather displaced

such beverage would not be complete

without a tray of dainties to eat

and if you decided you would risk it

you could choose to dunk a biscuit

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #257 #Isn’t nature wonderful

The glow worm is a quite

small bug that goes out at night

he has a luminous bum

to invite females to come

and check out the eerie green light.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #250 #Wordsearch

I will tell you a curious story

The point of it will soon become clear

Not sure if it’s true but this was told to me

So I will just pass on something quite queer

A young girl went riding on her family’s estate

Despite warnings she preferred to ride alone

Now begins the mystery as to her fate

Because on this occasion she didn’t return home

Her riderless pony was found wandering down the lane

And poor Miriam Anne Quinton was never seen again.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #171 My lucky day

Whilst flying high up in the sky

something of interest I did spy

so carefully looking all around

I wheeled and swooped down to the ground

imagine my surprise to see

a tasty morsel just for me

but in truth I thought it wrong to steal

what had been someone else’s meal

whose it once was I could not tell

so being hungry thought, “what the hell,

I’ve had nothing else to eat

so gobbled up the tasty treat

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #248 #Strange little girl

I used to live in a place called New Mawden

and I went to school with a Lizzie Bawden

with her long black hair she looked delicious

but apparently she was quite capricious

when I asked her if she wanted to come out to play

she said she was helping mum chop sticks that day

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #166 Spooky

Twixt bin and bench one day was found

a full three feet below the ground

some curious objects from history

giving rise to a local mystery

when asked how old no one seemed to know

but they were placed there long ago

now if you want to go and see’em

you’ll have to visit the county museum

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #160

In all these challenges I have never

tried to do something really clever

but this week I’m going to be bold

for my new post I’ll show one that’s old

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #156 “A dog’s life”

I love to go out for a walk

with my master in the park

and if no other dogs we see

he often lets me off the lead

I run around and sometimes if

I find something I have a good sniff

but best of all there’s a lot of trees

and on every one I can have a pee

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #155

When we took a ride on the big wheel

I was hoping to cop a feel

but it didn’t take long for me to see

the earth below and its beauty

when I said this to my girlfriend

she said our relationship should end

for saying no to me was just a game

and things could never be the same

I must admit I was taken aback

and said give me the fare money back

she said you can go to hell

so I’m left frustrated and poor as well
