10 WORD CONTEST - LETTER,UTENSIL, TICKEL, STARFISH, SPARSE PALOMINO,CANOPY,KINGDOM,ABREAST,WHEEL

"

                                             


                                                   My KINGDOM for a horse

not just any ordinary horse

I wanteth a PALOMINO colored horse

come hither, I am the Prince of Naught

I shalt visit the King

way yonder below the Royal Marquee CANOPY

but first my friend I am filled with pangs of hunger

what is thither to consume

bringeth me a pigs head to stuff mine visage

bring wine and an innocent wench 

to clip mineth toe nails!

perhaps tis too late for a LETTER 

the King must be kept ABREAST of my strategies of war!

prepare to fight, I will vomit on your leggings

I haveth been informed of his personal extravagances 

and his crazy dementia

maybe a gift will TICKLE his fancy

Shalt I offer a gold STARFISH stolen off the great Mayflower

or perhaps a more practical offering

a UTENSIL of sorts...

silverware from the Duchess Martha Stewart

or a WHEEL that is roundeth not squareth

although his rather SPARCE and scattered intellect

may cause my head to be chopped off!


Off with his head!

First of all - The donkey pic - had me howling with laughter. I always find these things tickle me.

There were quite a few funny lines in this piece which brough a smile to my face. But the imagination to make up such a piece is INCREDIBLE and I was most impressed at the sentences/verses I was reading. To do so well is a hard trick to pull off, but its saf to say that you NAILED IT.

Quirky, enjoyable, clever, thoughful, creative - thats what this fine piece is about.

Loved it.

Thank you for taking the 10 Word Challenge. I got a giggle out of this! A mix of Medieval Times, Henry the VIII and domestic bliss with Martha. Your images are cute & funny, too. De-Feeted but Not Defeated!
You have a wonderful imagination!
