OLWG #299- The Crispy Biscuit (a haibun)

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. Feel free to seize the prompts, twist them, form them, play with them as you will. All comers are welcome. The words below are just practice for me. I had a lot of fun writing them, and you know what I always say, “Practice makes perfect.”

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

Emberly Mae Adams finally had her fill of Mr Dawes and she walked out in the middle of the lunch shift at Crispy Biscuit Diner. She didn’t care; if he couldn’t keep his hands to himself he could wait tables himself. She wasn’t going to do it anymore.

She pushed through the swinging door from the kitchen, took off her apron, dropped it in the middle of the floor and continued out the front door to the car park where her red Ford Ranger waited. She got in her truck, started the engine, gunned it a few times and drove straight to The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission offices, in the new building at the corner of Tower and Pine. She’d show them the bruises on her bottom. Mr Dawes would regret his behaviour before this was over.

Em worked only a couple of weeks for Dawes before she’d had enough.

This week’s prompts are:

  1. it’s only moonlight
  2. soggy, tasteless, inert
  3. a buckskin stallion

 You can start writing whenever you want, just write, get the words down – and have fun! All the best!

  1. At least Em had something to show. Other bosses can harrass mentally… I had a few twits. But I also got up and left! Only so much one person can put up with.


    I played here with a fiction verse Moxie and Mettle


  2. I once had a boss who favored her part time college help over her regular part-time empolyees. All is well though. Now the only ‘boss’ I’ve got is me!
