The Childcatcher’s Hat (#NaPoWriMo Day 15)

#NaPoWriMo, Other Poetry Add comments


The prompt was to write about a villain facing a tough situation that reveals they are human; while still being evil.


A gust of wind

Took the favourite hat

O’er the lollipop stand.


Aghast, he grabbed

But seized only air

(His skills seemed to forsake him)


The hat had been

A much prized thing

A reward at one hundred.


The Bomburst favour

Had put a spring in his step

And a much crueller swish in his cane.


It seemed to wave as it flew

Far too eager

To let him stand bereft.
