Cupid’s a terrible aim.
Some say the affliction stinks-
The object of my unrequited
deflector of my
a gorgeous kitty.
A lonely skunk.
This is my silly response to the Trifecta weekly writing prompt. I’ve been absent for a couple weeks for this challenge but figured I could handle 33 words. But you can be the judge of that. No, really, you’re the judge because it’s a community vote week 🙂
You have 48 hours from when the challenge closes on Thursday to vote for your favorite. Click on the tricycle image to check out other entries- or even better- submit your own!
Here’s the challenge: this week we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words about love gone wrong. But we’re asking that you not use any of the following words: love; sad; tears; wept; heart; pain.
My poem is written from the POV of Pepé Le Pew- one of my favorite Looney Tunes characters! Poor guy did everything he could to woo his lady love, not realizing that she was a kitty, not a skunk. I’d post a photo, but don’t want to be busted by the copyright police 😛
Thanks for reading – have a great Monday!
