Some of earth’s animals were sucked out into space
Aliens from Mars were trying to create a new race
They were attempting to co-mingle genes from all different beasts
Hoping for a monster that would conquer worlds with ease
Not knowing the breeds on which they would tinker
Mixed a stink bug with skunk breeding one super-stinker
Luckily, the aliens gave up on their plan
The smell in their ship forced them back to their homeland
For Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Tinker in 75 words
Written for the The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS August 17/19
A simple transformation
Free of humanity
Welcoming his escape
Carefree to hunt
Written for the Weekend Writing Prompt #112 – “Carefree”
You can live like a sloth in a faux idyllic way
Wasting the hours that make up your day
Instead pick a goal, then lift up your feet
And set out to conquer any activity
Be it a marathon that you’ve trained yourself for
Or a disorganized closet that’s become an eyesore
Perhaps connecting with an old friend or love
Or shampooing that long-neglected rug
The key to success should be turned to drive
Get yourself out of neutral and start feeling alive

My buddy, Curtis was quite the storyteller. Every morning at the diner, he would share with us all a tall of some sort. They usually involved celebrities. I honestly don’t know if Curtis believed his stories, but we still were entertained. This morning’s yarn was a “Curtisdoozie”. He proclaimed he knew a guy who was related to someone who knew “The Beatles”. Curtis claimed,
“Most of them Beatles songs had different titles”.
Me and the boys smirked.
“Helter-Skelter’s original name was Heebie-Jeebies”.
I started to laugh thinking about poor John Lennon screaming “HEEBIE-JEEBIES!”
Curtis grinned at me, knowing full well that this was just “Beatles-bologna”.
