A Tale Of Yesteryear - 3 Word Wednesday

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:

Delinquent; Hapless; Trigger.

As a small boy, I had a couple 78's of the Lone Ranger - records made of their radio shows. The record covers were Lone Ranger comic book art. Later, after we could finally afford TV, I watched a ton of episodes of The Roy Rogers Show. I didn't care how anachronistic that show was.

A Tale Of Yesteryear

That day the sun rose
as a full blown delinquent
might, dropping trousers
to moon the hapless
ragged lot of us crouching
in our forlorn weeds.

Tonto, out of time,
whistled for Trigger to come
but that damn horse found
his herd, his harem
and would not come back to us,
not for nothing now.

The Lone Ranger was
left in the lurch, a solo
act without his ride.

(Wait a minute... no wonder... wrong horse! Roy and Dale and Pat, all caroming in Nellybelle have sent out Bullet on the hunt. Meanwhile, Silver is nowhere to be found either, hearty Hiyo or not!)

And finally, here's Roy with Pat, Trigger, Bullet, and Nellybelle.

Where the Hell is Dale?


  1. "Poultry in Motion" clever. And you think we don't read everything on the page, right?
    Great take on the three words this week.

  2. Nostalgia of my younger days!! ....and the three words found their way in too!!


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