This Week’s Words

READER PARTICIPATION

I have created a two-line poem for which almost endless possibilities exist for the second line.  I’ll give some examples and then invite you to add your own suggestions:

“Downhill from Here”

(1) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
fruit of the vine, taste of the grape, head pain.

(2) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
social awkwardness, major screw-up, lasting shame.

(3) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
weight gain, weight loss, weight gain.

(4) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
My delivery route, my tanker truck, propane.

(5) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
John Doe, baby Doe, wife Jane.

(6) Of that time and from that place three things remain:
that old line, that old ache, that old flame.

You get the idea.  Click on the heading above (“This Week’s Words”) to leave your suggestions as a “comment.”  You don’t need to give the first line; just leave your suggestions for the concluding line.

  1. Expect the worst, get what you expect, try again

    Expect the best, be disappointed, go home

    start jogging, three seconds pass, go home

    Vote trump, go to get your healthcare, go home confused

    Eat marmite, pull faces, avoid marmite

  2. New politics, new promises, then, more of the same.
    Point the finger, make excuses, find someone to blame.
    Poor preparation, rushed decisions, results are lame.
