The Effects of Moldy Bologna? A Saturday Centus

Jenny Matlock

The Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words, based on a prompt. I encourage you to jump aboard. Just click on the graphic above. It's great practice, and I've met wonderful peers this way. Plus, Jenny's our favorite teacher. I'm continuing the sci-fi series, with apologies to anyone who doesn't appreciate some Spock spoofing. This is a sequel to my last centus right here. The prompt is bolded.

We (Spock, Natashialovarita, and I) are really getting into some deep lunar craters now. This week's assignment involves a chickeny prompt to be captured in rhyme. Um, enjoy.

The Effects of Moldy Bologna?

The part of Little Spock is played by Astro Boy and young Natashialovarita (aka Rita), Dora (the Explorer).
“Once upon an eon,” James Earl states in rhyme,

“Little Spock and naughty Rita

Explored before their time.

So let’s just watch and listen

as Spock shrieks, 'I’m not a chicken!'”

“Then why’d ya look so sicken, chicken?”

“Uh, my bologna was moldy.”

Flapping her arms, Rita mocks,

“Bach! Bach! Spock! Spock! Bach! Bach!”

“Okay. Give it to me! I’ll be good, you’ll see!”

Spocky grabs her thing with a smirk and a wiggle.

The camera highlights their faces, as the two start to giggle.


  1. Another great post in the series Robyn.

  2. Excellent job Robyn !

    I was wondering when I saw the prompt this week "What's Robyn going to do with this ???" I was NOT disappointed with the answer. Amazing that you are still doing your ongoing story...I loved it !!!
    BTW, Spock played by Astro Boy and Natashialovarita played by Dora the Explorer...brilliant ( *WINK* )

  3. I wondered if you'd be able to pull the sci-fi off with this prompt and poem, but you did it up right!

    Nice work!!


  4. Well, you did it, sister! You actually worked Spock into it. But of course, there was never any doubt!!

  5. LOL! Priceless! If Gene Roddenberry were alive he would be giving you a standing ovation! Awesome job!

  6. OT, thanks. I appreciate it. xo

    Nonna, thank you. I was wondering the same thing. It took a long time to get this one done! ;0)

    Sue, see above. (I was wondering the same.) Thank you! xo

    Judie, aw shucks, thank you. [-:

    Marlene, yeah, it's pretty darn weird. Huh? Thanks! xo

    Tgo, well thank you. I just hope Gene isn't rolling in his grave. =o)

  7. Bwahahaha! I was hoping that you'd be able to continue your Spock saga. This was brilliant. You just made my day. Kat

  8. I'd like to see that one acted out. You don't often see Spock grabbing someone's thing with a smirk and a wiggle. I assume the thing was a phaser on stun.

  9. This is brilliant...naughty little Spock, never knew he had it in him and our sweet little "Swiper, no swiping" Dora shocks me no end...loved this.

  10. Robyn, I thought about you last night...I ate some chocolate cake. I would make you proud! Big piece of german chocolate cake, savoring every single mouthful. It has been seven months without really enjoying cake, and IT WAS TIME!

    love you my sister from a Jewish mister...
    Lisa xo

  11. Confession: I've never seen Star Trek, Dora the Explorer, or Astro Boy. Therefore, I don't know their personalities or what they're about.

    However, I will say that my favorite lines were the last two. Those were quite fun.

  12. Okay, that was mightily creative!

  13. Kat, you're so sweet. Thank you! xo

    GB, yeah, that Spock was a spunky little tyke. Who knew? Naughty Rita did. ;0)

    Rek, LOL. As if Dora hasn't done enough exploring. Geeze! Thank you! xo

    Lisa, I saw that post, and the cake looks scrumpious. I hope it tasted as yummy as it looked. Big hugs to you, dear sister. [-:

    Shan, confession: I've never seen Astro Boy. The name kinda worked, though. Glad you enjoyed the last few lines, in particular. xo

    Marla, I'm glad. You do the same for me, in addition to warming my heart. =o)

    Tattytiara, thanks so much for the compliment and visit! xo

  14. Oh I did enjoy! That was fun!

  15. Ha! YOu are so creative! I don't know much about science fiction but I still loved it!

  16. James Earl should be required to speak in rhyme for everything. Every day.

  17. They started early, didn't they? Side effect of high tech, no doubt.

  18. Oh Robyn this was such fun! I have watched my share of ol Dora! He better make his move before Swiper does!

    oh, i looked into that photo a little more for you. It says it is in Neveh Tzedek, Tel Aviv
    Hhope that helps! It is just gorgeous! Let's go ;)
    Love ya

  19. Wow! Sci-fi poetry? Different!

  20. A sci-fi, Dr.Seusical, Chicken prompted poem.
    It's hilarious. I love it. Great job!

  21. Lol. Doing them as kids is a good idea!!

  22. Holy Cheese Whiz. This was great! I have no idea how you continued your story with this crazy rhyming prompt.

    And, NO NO NO! Please say it isn't Dora the Explorer. Our Grand was sick this week and ummm... yeah, I'm pretty sick of Miss Dora!
