Future Fancy – #NaPoWriMo23 – Day 20

It’s NaPoWriMo Day 20!

“Today, I’d like to challenge you to…exploring a particular object or place from the point of view of some far-off, future scientist” [from Day Twenty (napowrimo.net)]

The alliteration that Maureen Thorson used at the end of that prompt started a snowball in my brain, and I chased it off downhill…


In a far-off future

My fate is fact.

My facades are fractured:

Some ‘friend’ flowed forth

My fetid failings

At a forlorn funeral

Few fashed for.


Or maybe my photo

Fixes frowns,

Is fondly referred to

By family far flung?

And friendly folk,

(Whose fortunate forefathers

Once followed my forays

On my Comfy forum)

Feverishly froth over

My fabulous fame

From my fifties onwards.


This fumbling facsimile

Of functional furniture

To fashion my fiction on

Might find itself

Foraged from my estate

And forced in front

Of futuristic fawners.


And I didn’t eff up.


Meet you back here for Day 21 😉
