33-Word Trifecta: Tether Ball, The Sport of Kings

Welcome, Dear Readers, to the Weekend Trifecta Challenge.  Today, we are challenged to write 33-word story incorporating the words: Tether, Loft and Crown.

Tether Ball, The Sport of Kings

King George

When King George would loft himself hither

To attach his ball to the tether

The jab made him cough

And his crown would slip off

Cause if it ain’t one thing it’s anither

Until next time . . . I love you

Trifecta Weekend 33-Word Poetry Challenge: Reaching Singularity

This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to write a poem in 33 words:

Reaching Singularity

on an elevator
with just yourself
life delayed
on an elevator
with just yourself
plus 14 people — but they’re so quiet it’s like being
on an elevator
with just yourself

“Maybe this is the alone button.”
