seize the poem prompt: Folly (off prompt)

.

My Response to the Prompt:

.

oh, mercy ! … roots showing
“back in the day” not fashionable
and in poor taste
in a hurry ~ time of the essence
she wanted highlights ~ a frosting
turned her blonde hair blue
Yikes.
That won’t do
tried again ~ why call and ask solution
orange curls are what she wore to work
.
============
for Joy… may she RIP with golden curls
as her halo

times a-changin’

Many changes in the district…consolidation
with remodeling and one new built.

OctPoWriMo 2015 Day 22: Off to see the Queen

.

My poem:

.

off to see Queen
borrowed clothes and shoes
socks he had
friends had to stay in Maine
their garments met royalty
.

.
note:
a friend had an invitation
to a ceremony in England where
Queen Elizabeth was giving his
sister an award. Being retired
and living in Maine, he no longer
had any occasion for proper dress
to meet the Queen. He borrowed
what he needed from his friends at
a retirement community.
