#May Writing ~The Plunger Games


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


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


Inspired by Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #14 and May Writing Prompts – Presumed Guilty – Day 20/31

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


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

May Writing – Clara’s fruit of choice – #MayWriting


Aunt Clara chose once again some great dishes to prepare

Her family would soon enjoy yet another delicious affair

Before the first course, all bowed down their heads in blessings

Then Clara served out the salad covered in her own Raspberry dressing

Those delightful greens tantalized everyone with each little leafy bit

Which was then followed up by Clara’s Raspberry soup which was just exquisite

If these entrees weren’t enough to satisfy all the kin

Clara then brought out her Raspberry pot-roast for everyone to dig-in

Multiple side dishes like Raspberry stuffing and Raspberry surprise

Proved that old theory that a stomach is always smaller than one’s hungry eyes

When this buffet finished stuffing everyone in gluttonous prosperity

It was time for desserts that were Clara’s absolute specialty

Everyone knew of Clara’s tarts always filled with her favorite fruit

Yet, when she brought out this fresh batch they clearly were substitutes

“Not all tarts are Raspberry” Clara announced to the family with a pout

“I made you a Raspberry flavored meal and I simply ran out”

Genre writing challenge/ May Writing ~A New Hero #MayWriting #THWS


A new lawlessness had arrived in Metro-park city
The police now outmatched by foes with inhuman abilities

Villains called Lady Von Psycho and Mister Darkmind
Used their evil ways to pull off multiple, heinous crimes

Professor Schmidt discovered a way to stop these invincible cowards
He invented a thing to give himself even mightier super-powers

With superhuman new skills Schmidt extracted all villainy 
Going forth as protector for all the citizen’s restored harmony 

However, Schmidt had no name for his secret alternate skin
A hero’s moniker should reference his life-changing origin

Not bitten by a glowing spider or transformed by a wizard named Shazam
He simply ate radiated food and became the all-powerful ‘ GREEN-EGGS AND SPAM MAN!’


Written for the May Writing Prompt – Green Eggs and Spam – Day 13/31 and The Haunted Wordsmith’s daily prompt (Genre challenge) – Superhero


Fifty Shades of Embarrassment – #MayWriting #poetry


Frank needed sex each and every night

His libidio was vast with no end in sight

From bondage to role-play with various women

Nothing taboo in his promiscuous living

He knew how to get booty with his charming, smooth lies

Then the bombshell of all gals walked into his life

A lady so hot that no man could resist

But, it was Frank who she wanted in erotic bliss

Throughout their date she lustfully alluded about the end of their night

Frank rushed through their dinner to expect such a potential delight

Once back at her place she coaxed him to strip down

Then flirted with him to slip into a formal evening gown

Granted this was a bit above Frank’s kinkier stuff

Still, this babe was his grail as she clamped on him handcuffs

Now, the rest of the night didn’t go as what you would surmise

Instead this seductress was secretly planning a vengeful surprise

For you see, she already knew stories of this creep’s sexual gains

And she set out for payback for soiling previous women’s good names

Humiliating pics taken of Frank would prove to be fitting punishment

Especially after being published in the book ,“Fifty Shades of Embarrassment”
