What is a Jigsaw?

#Writeclub #Whatis

for this prompt, i had to try to explain to an alien what a particular item was – i picked a jigsaw – enjoy!

Think of a picture of Zaphod-C

that’s hurtled on to the floor of your ship

or been zapped into a thousand pieces

It’ll remind you of those asteroids

you carefully passed to end up here

but never fear

they can be put back together

it’ll just take some time

and be done before the hour

on the clock does chime

remember the shape and picture

before – it casually

hurtled towards the floor

that’s the frame – Your aim?

Fill it and form it from those

ameoba shaped bits

familiar spots – have their own plots

and they fit in the frame – give it a shot

When you’ve linked them as one

You’ll find – you are done
