Smokescreen Baby


She was lean and mean a mere string bean

She loved the scene at the local canteen

A cup of caffeine sparked her routine

She wowed her fans with her tambourine

A silver screen queen and only thirteen



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word routine.  Please drop by and join the challenge at Patricia’s Place.
