So That's What Happened - 3WW

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:

Focused; Pair; Vacant

So That's What Happened

You demanded it.
Stay focused, you called sadly
shaking your huge mane.
Grow a pair, you fool.

I kept on staring vacant
eyed and then I fell
flat on my damn face
in sudden total recall
of the last three years.

  1. Let's hope the next three work out better!

  2. EEK!
    I'd say
    the next three years
    would be better spent
    from the one
    with the mane

  3. At some point (with or without a shaking) I guess 'we' all feel the thud of reality..maybe it depends whether we stay awake enough to remember the next three years that counts..think I'm in the foot in foot out camp..but then I don't have a pair..literally at least..Jae (still trying to place the photo..I see the gun..could be Colin recall?)..fine chicken gag too!

  4. Yes the image is Total Recall, though I think of the Schwarzenegger version more readily. The idea driving the poem is that kind of flood of memory.

  5. Great pic for the piece you wrote. Nice use of the words.

  6. Many of us have been at the brink of such situations too??? Good one there...

    Do visit my blog! Would love to see you by! *cheers*

  7. nice tight write. I haven't seen the remake, but I enjoyed the original.


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