Scratch (an acrostic poem)

 

Stuck with an itch to do something 

Cathy decided to set out on an adventure 

Really it was just a trip to the casino 

And she only brought fifty bucks 

That made it even more interesting to her 

Could be she was wasting her time 

Hour later she was three hundred to the good, and that made some nice…

Scarf (an acrostic poem)

 

So do you want to take a small trip with me?

Care to see what the universe holds?

And as a bonus, you can travel not only in space but also in time

Really it will be a jolly good jaunt in my little Tardis over here

For we will try to avoid the fiddly “exterminate” bits

Life Burns (a 100 word story)

He poked at the fire, trying to make it brighter to push back the overwhelming darkness.  Sparks danced into the air, but his feeble attempts failed to make that part of the world any more luminous.  Pissed off he unzipped and proceeded to urinate on the flames, drowning them and allowing the darkness to flood into the space.

He laughed as it so epitomized how his life treated him.

He decided to wander back to his cabin.  Being fire blinded, he tripped on a branch, falling flat on his face.  “Nope, that’s my life,” he mumbled in the fallen leaves.

Gadgets (an acrostic poem)

Getting ahead these days screams for electronics

Andrew felt like he was a cyborg because of it

Doing common things without using his phone, watch, tablet

Gave him the creeps.  It was like being in the middle-ages

Electrons flowed through his veins, he was sure of it

Then the worst case happened, he was on a trip and forgot his chargers

So when his friends found Andrew in a comatose state, they mourned his passing
