The party was most rudely crashed,
the cake and the room trashed,

candelabra overturned,
thankfully, no one burned,

dishes and glasses broken,
many curses uttered, oaths spoken.

There was one major failing
in the party crasher’s planning,

they never thought the princess dress
would conceal a raging lioness.



For The Mag image prompt
and just to prove not all is dark today.

    • Shocking huh? Needed something light hearted after a string of dark.
      Since you are in a reading mood… 🙂 take a look a couple back at A Trip to Remember and give me a critical opinion. Not a revision project yet, just a reality check. Is it as good as the comments suggest, or simply a heart tugger? I am in the car (yes stopped) or I would give the link.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
