Back to the futile

by Laura Doom

Too awful for words;
at least, those that pass
for originality.
Not surprising, then
I haven't got a clue
when it comes to righting
the write thing.
So I'll continue
sitting on offence,
if that's my wrong,
until alternatives
are written on the waul.

Very well done m'lady. Words like colors have more shades than we can name and more spellings than we can accept. It maybe why we txt s mch.

Clever play with words, loved "sitting on offense", and had to look up "waul", which now will haunt me listening for your words. Thank you.

I note that your alter natives yet play forwards. In all resiliency, I bask.
