Saturday Centus, Just a Little More
Happy October! Here's another Saturday Centus, a little poem just for you. The Centus involves working with a prompt, keeping the piece within 100 words. This week's prompt is not a sentence, but the photo above. You may notice, as it's rather obvious, that my brain jumped from this big orange squash to, well, candy (i.e., not squash). It always does.
Just A Little More
The fairy princess is ready,
A glistening sight.
Time to grab that big bag
And fill it just right.
No apples or raisins,
Just candy galore.
And then, after that, a little bit more.
And, well, OKAY, just a little bit more.
Darkness increases, while the sleepies do too
So it's time to go in, and try just a few.
And just a few more.
And, really, just one more.
Charged from the sugar, I don't sleep okay.
How will I function at work the next day?
HAPPY TRICK-OR-TREATING, one and all!
