SATURDAY CENTUS...dear meany

Jenny Matlock
So...Jenny has done some vicious word slashing this week. She's given us instruction to use only twenty-five words to express ourselves about the following prompt:




"The End"

So I will try to regale everyone with my writing...not gonna call it a skill yet.


Dear Meany Pause,
Invading our core without asking permission
Literally 'boiling' up massive contention
Continual rude demanding, immensely vain
Send now "the end!"
please NO MORE refrain.


Jer. 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
Blessings,

Your did such a clever job with so few words! It made me laugh, after crying all morning. Thanks for that. There is hope, my dear. One day you will wake up and find that you are cool, very cool.

Namaste..........cj

It was 101º yesterday and the day before. We are stewing in our own juice!

Meany pause does seem to go on and on, without end, doesn't it?

Hot flashes, night sweats...as we baby boomers age, it might be smart to invest in stock for Depends, room fans and deodorant.

Wow, that was good...it is wicked hot outside, thank goodness no more horrid heats or sweats from within for me !!!

I think if I tried to limit myself to 25 words I might self combust!

Meany Pause, had to read this twice. Not there yet, but if how my Mom went through it is any indication it should be starting up any day now. Bring it on, I live in Canada. Could use the heat now and again.

You are fanning the flames of hot flashes everywhere. Original take. Almost all of us can relate. Excellent work.

That's a great letter. I hope Meany gets the message, once and for all. This was clever.

Judie said...

Hahahaha!! I LOVE it! You rock, sister!!!!

skoots1mom said...

when you have a TRUE HATE for something words come easier...thanks, everyone :)
If men got 'meany-pause', it would have been figured out a long time ago...come on lady doctors, we're counting on you and I DON't want my girl to suffer like this.

Jo said...

oh i can totally relate!

Tgoette said...

Bravo! What a creative and unique take on the prompt!

Anna said...

Wow, clever poem! I really like the illustrations (even though we are not allowed to have any pictures with these posts), with all of the "The End"-pictures from films. It is akin to my take, being a film-buff as I am.

Where I am now it is not too hot. But the flipside of this climate is that we are closer to the Artic Circle and have long dark winters!

Summer ends one day and in the mean time, drink some lemonade!

Best wishes,
Anna

Wow. I can soooo relate to this little gem of word crafting.

It hardly seems fair, does it?

Why can't men get the hot-flashes and all the icky meno-mess?

Hang in there.

Thanks for linking up. I think you definitely touched a red-hot nerve for a lot of us!
