#May Writing ~The Plunger Games

0

The world that you know will no longer be yours
This alternate reality has people’s status now blurred

No longer revered are social media whores
Destinies now controlled by those doing manual chores

Your icons in power are now blue-collar beings
The ones who slaved hard for your life’s simple things

Ditch-diggers, waitresses and local electricians
Bricklayers and maids now make the world’s decisions

But, there’s  one occupation that rules over all the rest
A job where they’re actions have been labeled the best

The nominated president from this particular career
Is chosen to lead everyone for the next four to ten years

No democracy allowed voting for this leader’s rise to fame 
They were merely a plumber who survived the dreaded plunger games

Presumed Guilty ~ #MayWriting #FFFC

6

Academic angel respected in a parent’s town

Enlightened youths in the classroom battleground

Years of recognition then soiled by one claim

A change of opnion brings unwanted fame

Familiar mentors now examine and spy

They now question this one’s once accepted life

Fluid rumors betray obstructing whats true

Presumed guilty by prejudice ignorantly brewed

Civility buried as violence is thrown

Like Salem justice where justice was not known

A now broken house is forced for sale

All because of a one student’s false, fabricated tale

May Writing Prompts ~Anne of Gruesome Gables #MayWriting

Come closer dear listener if you feel you are able, to at last hear the truth about Anne of gruesome gables

No, not that one story involving Polly-Ann and her sister Mable
That one is all false and often mislabeled

Its also not the tale which begat the film starring Clark Gable, Nor is it that farce about newlyweds Nick and Hazel


I’ve made us some tea it’s over here on the table
Now, sit down with me as I state all the facts of this often confused fable

May Writing ~ A Long History of Nearly Nothing – #MayWriting

2

You rarely notice me being this inanimate thing

Yet, I’ve witnessed so much despite what you think

I was here when you only grunted among savage clans

Then watched you evolve into using tools with your hands

Your industrial age’s birth was incredible to behold

I silently observed as you built up this world that we know

My long history of nearly nothing may appear to be not exciting

But, from my endless perspective it was incredibly enlightening
