Making It Up


I knew when he started to giggle
that he was going to cave in.
All evening he'd been chattering,
on and on, all a load of moonshine.
At any minute I had thought I
would wake up from his crazy, surreal world.
Mind you, a sudden awakening like that
can shatter all sense of anything
approaching the reality I seek.
Therefore, I decided to ride it out.
Anything he said I would write up later
and somehow make a scoop of it. My editor
would cut me in, I knew, and split
his ill-gotten gains with me.

Wtitten to The Sunday Wordle 113.

I like the idea of writing to a set of given words Dave - it sharpens the mind.

LOL!! Another scoop, an editor and reporter working hand in glove!!

Breaking news for another channel!!:)

Made it up but could be true to life somewhere in another part of the world!!:)

Hi! and welcome. Good to have you visiting. Thank you for your comment.

Brian
Dat's my philosophy, yesssssssssssiree!

The Weaver of Grass
Yes, I think so, though it didn't appeal to me for a long time and I avoided it, but I have found it useful for just that reason.

Nanka
Yes, very made up, but largely assembled from bits I've heard somewhere sometime.

Many thanks for dropping by to give your thoughts. Great to have you - and them.
