19 June: dVerse Quadrille

 Children's Games by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.


I’m named after
Mum’s childhood friend
who sat on some scissors,
slicing her buttocks open,

and Mum was green as envy –
that girl excused from school
for 3-months, sitting being
a for-sure impossibility,

and it’s odd,
how brainiest people
mis-spell our name …

for dVerse Poets. Quadrille (44-words) including the word spell.  ©Misky 2022 Shared with #amwriting on Twitter. And a bit of music to go with it.

  1. Ha! This is very whimsical. A fun read! 😃


  2. But just think of all that lying on her tummy she’d have had to do!

    Liking the music. Sounds very country (but enjoying nonetheless).


  3. First sentence had me laughing!
