Her photo prompt, my 15 Words of Less Poem. Quite possibly the oddest combination of words & pictures I've posted to date; I think I shall title this one ~
Beware Walmart Shoppers
amuses, entertains, disgusts,
helpless to look away.
This week was a stretch for me; I knew what I wanted to say, but a 15-word-limited can be challenging! Hopefully, you'll get the gist of it….
Be sure to visit Laura for more "15 words or less poems" or to enter your own! It's a fast, fun, creative exercise.
Your turn: As I said, this was a creative, POETIC stretch for me; I kept wanting to CAPTION this. If any fun(ny) (or otherwise) captions came to your mind, DO SHARE in comments! Your humorous and/or poignant thoughts will be a delight to all!
Not me ,but me
Not in an aisle
But unveiled constantly
I went for poignant instead of funny because I get that even when I look all holy and good, and noble on the outside – God knows me – pant’s down – He knows I try – He knows my heart – He knows I want to be like him – and how I so often fail – even when nobody knows – especially when nobody knows. I heart God. I always heart your words. Not to speak for God or anything, but I think God hearts your words to.
P.S. Merriam Webster just called. Apparently the proper spelling of “to” here – was “too”. They upbraided me for being a bad speller, and also berated me for a missing space in my first line. They let that one go though, because it was poetry.
But they were very hard on “to” as opposed to “too”. I explained it was just a typo. They said I should proofread. I said I did. They said – well you didn’t do it good enough, did you? I felt ashamed, sad, said I was sorry. I don’t think they forgave me. You forgive me though, right?
That was perfectly put – you nailed it!
Caption? “Sir, you do know that we have fitting rooms, don’t you?”
OMG, I almost fell off my chair laughing! I love it.
Craig, Bravo! Isn’t it amazing how a random photo can inspire? You need to start your blog(s) so you can post these at YOUR place!
Do I dare admit M-W has called me out a few times, two? 😉
Rachel, Yes! I had that thought, too! Great minds, right? 😉
Michelle, Although I haven't actually walked into this scene at Walmart, it wouldn't surprise me a bit.
This image reminds me that RAPE is impossible. It easier for a woman to run from an atacker with her skirt up than for a man with his pants down.
