Deal 1129: toybox

little wooden boy
complex strung toy
brought down with a blow
of edged head by crow
strings tangled askew
limbs and body flew
a low blow by far
strike child commence war

or put toys away
healthy another day

Deal 1068: Dessert

A nightmare of sorts has startled me awake. I’ve been cooking just long enough to see where this one was going.

In it, I found myself a contestant. The pantry is understocked, but that is hardly a surprise. I am required to use one emu egg, a jar of pickles, and a three-pound slice of dry aged beef rib eye, complete with two bones on.

Did I mention that this is the dessert round. And my competition is Alton Brown?

I think I was going to bake some sort of sweet beef and pickle pie when I scared myself awake. I have no idea what Alton was going to do.

Now I want to go back to sleep to see how it turned out!

Deal 1063: Double Nonnet for a bang

if it blows we blew it completely
“boom” is the last thing we would hear
“cut the blue wire” so they say
there is no blue wire here
every wire is red
logic says cut
while praying
the fuse
snip
it’s cut
I’m not dead
I am lucky
we are all lucky
that i picked a red wire
among seven just like it
we will hear “boom” some other year
it did not blow so we succeeded!
