OLWG #83- Deserve

 This week’s prompts are at the bottom. This short verse, I wrote for practice.  Practice makes perfect. Let me know what you think.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.



As a boy, my Momma would call me home
and I’d run the other way
Later, when I’d get a whuppin’
I never thought it was deserved

As a young man my country called me
I didn’t run – I answered
They pinned ribbons on my tunic; though
others did much more

But, you? You attracted me! I pursued you.
You didn’t call at all
I don’t need the world; I just need you
I’m undeserving


This week’s prompts are:

  1. if I had enough
  2. drowning in words
  3. the phone trilled

Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Write something
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need.

¡y próspero Año Nuevo!
