I can’t believe it is April 26th, and Day 23 of Rena Traxel’s A to Z Poetry Challenge. The month is almost over and I have all these new poems! Not only me…but all who took the challenge. That’s a lot of poetry! Thank you, Rena! Today our letter is “W”. Julie Rowan-Zoch provided some inspiration with her “wicked” drawing. She is a true talent, and has been generous in her contributions to our challenge. Although my poem isn’t specifically about her picture, that evil expression got my creative juices flowing to all things evil in a fun sort-of-kid way. I had lots of errands to do today, but I had my trusty notebook and pulled over in many parking lots to jot down the next thought or idea. As I finished my day waiting for take-out for dinner…I finished my poem. I hope the cook didn’t brew up a “special” spell for me. So far, I feel the same…but I haven’t looked in the mirror. Anyway…Enjoy! Wickedness, Fickleness Wand and words of wickedness Stir a brew of fickleness. Croak! Should I use spell one or two… Spotted frog or moley shrew? Should I use spell three or four… Ugly warts or babbling bore? Should I use spell five or six… Legs of iron or arms of sticks? Should I use spell seven or eight… Frozen tongue or sleeping state? Should I use spell nine or ten… Bleating goat or clucking hen? Wand and words of wickedness Stir a brew of fickleness. Croak! One or Two or Three or Four or Five or Six or Seven or Eight or Nine or Ten? Again… Wand and words of wickedness Stir a brew of fickleness. Croak! Ten or Nine or Eight or Seven or Six or Five or Four or Three or Two or One? Which one? It doesn’t matter what I choose, Witches always seem to loose. So, Bibbity, boppity, hit or miss— She’ll be rescued by a kiss! And I’ll be stirring up more brew For princess number sixty-two! ………………..#62……………………. Wand and words of wickedness Stir a brew of fickleness. Croak!
