Vault: Weekend Writing Prompt

https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2020/10/24/weekend-writing-prompt-180-vault/

I’m helping you….

Open the safe 

Open the vault 

Take all the money 

It’s never your fault. 

Take all the money 

Hurry up run! 

What did you say? 

This isn’t real fun? 

Why are you worried? 

Why are you scared? 

It’s not a big deal 

It’s not like I cared. 

Go ahead and cry 

I will just say goodbye

Strange: Ragtag Daily Prompt

For the Ragtag Community: https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2020/10/24/rdp-saturday-strange/

It’s True

If you think that I’m strange  
 
Then maybe so are you  
 
If you think the sky’s grey  
 
It’s still really blue.  
 
If I think that you’re weird  
 
Then come along with me  
 
I have something to share  
 
Something for you to see. 
 
If this doesn’t make sense  
 
then you are totally right  
 
It’s like saying a real zebra 
 
isn’t black and white.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 28 (FATE) This week, it’s the B rhyme line.

Integrity

When we sit upon our own shelf 

We look at our lives and our fate 

We wonder the time and the date 

It’s time to reflect on yourself 

Ponder like that creepy old elf 

Are we doing the right things now? 

Can we happily take a bow? 

Living a life with honesty 

Moving forward with clarity? 

“I’ll do what I must” is my vow.

Finagle – FOWC with Fandango

For Fandango’s Daily challenge: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/20/fowc-with-fandango-finagle/

verbINFORMAL•US

  1. obtain (something) by devious or dishonest means.”Ted attended all the football games he could finagle tickets for”
    • act in a devious or dishonest manner.”they wrangled and finagled over the fine points”

Good Acting

When we walked out to the mezzanine 

My eyes were filled with joy 

For there upon the stage below 

Was my own born baby boy. 

He had his hair brushed to the side 

As his father taught him how 

He had his tie done up real tight 

To stay tied while he took a bow. 

He knew that he was there to act 

And acting is what he did 

He didn’t have to finagle his crew 

They were proud of this young kid.

Recondite – #YDWordPrompt October 19, 2020

YDWP: https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2020/10/19/your-daily-word-prompt-Recondite-ydwordprompt-October-19-2020/

(of a subject or knowledge) little known; abstruse.

Milly walked through the aisles. She couldn’t find anything that piqued her interest. The teacher had given explicit instructions to find a topic that was something that would have enough information to write a report on. So many of the teen issues she was considering had recondite information and she could probably only write a paragraph about each topic.

Hardihood: Ragtag Daily Prompt

boldness; daring

A Little Hero

Once upon a time there was a little man named Pipsqueak, that lived in a little house in a little neighborhood. He loved his little dog and his little house and made sure he always had little flowers planted and a little bit of green grass growing. One day Tony, one of the big men in town, had a big problem at his big house. He wanted to find a big friend, but most were in their own big homes.  

Ironically, Tony was looking down the street and saw Pipsqueak. Tony waved a big hand. Pipsqueak waved his little hand. In a big voice Tony said, “Pipsqueak, I have a big problem!” Pipsqueak nodded his little head to show he understood. “Don’t worry, Tony, I can help you a little.” Pipsqueak followed Tony back to his big home.  

Sometime later, Pipsqueak shook Tony’s big hand. “Thanks for that little bit of help,” said Tony. 

“It wasn’t a big deal,” Pipsqueak said, with a little laugh. 

“Pipsqueak you are the littlest man with the biggest amount of hardihood that I have ever met.

Scuttlebutt – FOWC with Fandango

For: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/19/fowc-with-fandango-scuttlebutt/

rumor; gossip

Coffee Instead

Sitting around the water cooler 
or sitting on a boat 
we all like to laugh and smile, 
we all love to gloat. 

We think the things that we do right 
are better than the rest 
but this is all just scuttlebutt 
We can put it to the test. 

Did you really? Have you ever? 
Did they answer you? 
The best thing is to walk away 
Instead, enjoy a brew.
