My Discomfort - 3WW (The Hangover)

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.

Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

This week's words:

Generous; Just; Penalize.

The Hangover

What will happen next
is what I wonder, gazing
into those generous black
eyes that could be mine.
True, I know the ghoul
claiming those eyes, just, unjust,
and bitterly bright
will penalize me.
Please, I do realize times
have certainly changed.

  1. Ha, what's this....a dog with a hangover?

  2. It's a sharp left turn from the serious to the absurd. :D

  3. I am not sure whether he has a hang dog look with a doggy hangover or just the weight of the ice pack on his head. Either way the post and the picture are a delight.

  4. Despite the (adorable) doggie with a sore head..i think there is much substance in your poem..the discomfort a headache! Jae

  5. It's almost like cheating but I have changed the poem to tighten things up and it's gotten a new name too. Thanks for the comments which have adjusted my vision, especially Jae's. I think I started thinking of a hangover but wanted to go somewhere else, but that was before I actually found and added the photo.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
