Rumor

#FOWC #Rumor

Reading some tittle-tattle in the morning press ?

Unless there’s something that sticks – don’t worry! – It’ll

Make wonderful wrapping for fish suppers tomorrow

Of course – these things come from your actions

Reality will make you make a statement if its true

Debate

Salford 15th February 2020

#Fowc #Debate

During the week, it was the hot topic of conversation

Election ? Europe ? no! none of these

But a culinary conundrum – which sandwich was better

A choice of Sausage, Egg, Bacon, or Cheese

The favourite – an obvious choice – but

Everyone wants their own bite of the butty!

Impossible

#Fowc #Impossible

Its crazy – you’re given the

Made up puzzle in a box and then

Prise it apart – in order to put in back together again

Of course, they give you a guide – but

Something isn’t right

Something doesn’t fit – and

It’s making you wonder why you took the whole thing out of the

Box – all the pieces are there

Laid out on the table – but who said it would be

Easy ?

Riddle

#Fowc #Riddle

Rhymes that pose a question

In verse, or a song or a Rhyme

Difficult posers to ponder

Definitely takes you some time

Long winded questions – with no apparent answer

Except when the bell starts to chime

Prerogative

#fowc #prerogative

Picking out your own path

Really doesn’t need anyones permission

Even if you seek advice

Roads they travel down are down to you

Of course, there will be times you may

Go down the wrong route,

Reaction to that ? It’s part of the learning process

And the final decision is down to you…

There’s always another turn in the road, and

If you don’t like a particular path you can

Veer away from it if you want to

Expect a surprise or two…that’s life!

Tribal

#Fowc #Football #Soccer #Rugby

Two crowds sit on their

Respective rumps, cheering on the warriors

In their tribes colours Red or Blue

By the end of the first act

A tribe at one end of the ground is jubilant

Leaping in the air – whilst the other isn’t so happy

Spaghetti

Salford 3rd February 2020

#food #acrostic #spaghetti #bolognaise

Spaghetti : Image from stock art created by Inky Using Painter Essentials 7

Sent headlong into the boiling water

Pasta long and thin took a bit of a hot bath

As it did, the concoction it was being served with

Gradually came together, as minced beef met up in a

Hot tomato jacuzzi with onion , carrot and mushroom

Eventually,

Turned out onto plates and sauce and pasta

Twirled together round a trident aided by a spoon

Italian cuisine turned out on Mancunian plates

#Food #Poetry

Salford, 2nd February 2020

Totally encompassed in this little parcel

out of nowhere,

a sausage or two

sends sensations to the tastebuds

totally making them wild with each chew

inquisitive minds wonder – what’s in it that’s so delicious ?

eat up! and you’ll find out!

Daybreak

#Writephoto #Daybreak

Daybreak : Image prompt from Sue Vincents Daily Echo




Darkness disappeared from view

As the moon and sun changed places

Yawning – Luna told Ra she’d see him at noon

But now, she was off to bed

Ra smiled, as he peeked above the horizon

Everyone seeing his glow raised a smile

Apart from those who had been running under his sisters light – now

Kipping in their beds in the nearby trees

Strange

#fowc #strange

Sat on the town bus, with his big bow tie and

Those big floppy boots – he looked rather odd

Reactions to his make up – mildly shocked

A clowns face – but not one you would laugh at

Noted – his actions were disturbing too

Grimacing at passengers at other stops and

Extreme laughter at little kids
