Tale of Woe



I faked my teacher with a woven tale

Full of salty ideas and high five flaws

A poor attempt to receive applause

Well taught lessons lost their cause

My tilt of the lilt caused my fail




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

    Hey Gugenia,

    A wonderful little ditty on telling the truth 🙂

    One thinks of the little-boy who cried wolf once to often and ended up being eaten lol 🙂

    Thank you Engenia. Hoping all is well with you 🙂

        Hey Eugenia,

        That’s my pleasure, I enjoyed this piece of writing, thank you. And all is well at time of writing, as I trust it is for you.

        Summer has been beautiful this year. I have been admiring the flowers and roses you have blogged recently. The golden rose was exceptionally beautiful, don’t you think?

        Take care Eugenia in all ways always.

        Namaste 🙂


        P.S: My apologies for the earlier typo with your name.

    Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.~Proverbs 16:18
    This illustrates that proverb quite well. Good work, Eugenia.
