Anecdotal (#NaPoWriMo Day 17)

Today’s poem is baggily based on a legendary driving ‘lesson’ my Grandmother had, as per the prompt.


A day of ‘shine –

The air sublime –

I took a ride out with him;

My checkered dress

All neatly pressed,

New hat with pretty pink trim.



“It isn’t far,

You drive the car”

He said: a smile, a titter.

I took the bait

And sealed my fate

(I’m an impulsive critter)


I paid the toll:

I lost control!

Wheels that embankment breached…

Him: [unimpressed]

“Was that your best?!”

Me: “What?! We ‘hit the beach’…!”
