(and then this happened)
Winter Prompt #15
Today, the given word is “dote.”
Perhaps I’ll write about a goat?
Or something I wrote about before?
A Dr. Suessy sort of note?
I will not write about a goat.
I will not write about a stoat
or a note in Dr. Suess’s style.
How about a winter coat?
Is a stoat anything like a weasel?
Do weasels eat oats?
People make winter coats from weasel fur,
but only when it’s white. In winter.
Maybe weasels eat groats?
This is ridiculous. A kind of compote
of rhyming words on this white page.
Don’t quote me, please.
Compote, compose, compost. . .
Take the mote out of my eye,
and don’t quote me, unless to say,
“It’s all she wrote.”
With the mote removed, I can see!
Do you know that anecdote?
Anyhow, “It’s all she wrote.”
I’ll end this with an antidote.
This needs work.
