happy hour is over

Challenge at Poetics Pub to use drinking words (listed) for a non-drinking activity…


last call for dirty laundry as granny

loaded tumbler for one more round,

tipping a bodacious shot of bleach.

“c’mon, help tie one on the clothesline,”

she says, hanging three sheets to the wind.

then turns sour, seeing hair of the dog on

whites;  kamikaze-like, she yells straight-up

“choose your poison, we gotta rewash ’em!”

    What fun this is! Great work Lynn. I always hated hanging sheets on a windy day.

    I hate laundry day, like it even less if it needs a redo. I liked the mixology referencs. They are well placed
