Carry On Tuesday

2nd attempt. I don't write poetry or prose because mostly I don't understand it, but I will try and write by the rules.


Key words/phrases


Everyone suddenly burst out singing.
And I was filled with such delight.


I woke that morning filled with such dread.
I thought to myself, "I'll just stay in bed."

I reached for the phone to call in sick.
The boss said to me, "Oh, you're such a hick."

Hours or minutes I do not know which
There was a rap on the door that caused me to twitch.

I called out, "Come in." Though I know not why.
I thought I might just possibly die.

The room filled with people who were noisily winging.
Suddenly everyone burst out singing.

And I was filled with such delight
that I gave up my blight.
It was only a birthday.
And I couldn't give up without a fight.

  2. I love it! A real rhyme, and a wonderful use of the prompt. Thanks so much for taking part. And remember, you don't always have to submit poetry. I've used prose myself this week. See you next week? I hope so.
