Sarah has for this week Lucky Dip, a Trois-par-Huit Poetry Form – The topic is up to us.
Please Don’t Scare
wondering while sitting
strange objects floating around the room
Is there going to be another loud boom
to set them running faster than a sweeping broom.
Pretty as kittens can look, beware
They need fun, I declare
Please don’t scare
