‘Cabbage, Pagoda, Scissors’

Will: Fancy a game of ‘Cabbage, Pagoda, Scissors’, Ben?

Ben: Shouldn’st that be ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’, Will?

Will: That game is so of yesterday, Ben. The game of this moment, here now, is ‘Cabbage, Pagoda, Scissors’.

Ben: So, how does it work, Will?

Will: Well, Pagoda blunts Scissors; Scissors cut Cabbage; Pagoda flattens Cabbage.

Ben: And ‘Cabbage’?

Will: ‘Cabbage’ durst not doest anything, Ben. Nobody ever chooseth ‘Cabbage’.

Ben: Never?

Will: Not unless they really liketh Cabbages, Ben.

Ben: Okay, Will – I get that. Let us play on!

Will: Let us do so, my friend.

They shake their clenched fists

Both: Pagoda!

And on it went.

Cabbage Pagoda Haiku

Cabbage Pagoda,

Where have you been all my life?

In China? How quaint.

Poetry Under The Duvet.

My poetry

Is

On

A bit of a

Go

Slow

Today.

It doesn’t

Really

Want

To

Play.

It said

To

Me.

“I just want

To

Stay

Under the duvet

Where

It’s all

Snuggly.”

Excuse’ @baffled #HaikuChallenge

Excuse my success;

Six successive scissors seem

To beat your paper.

99 Words about ‘Polite Showers’

99 Words about White Flowers

No more no less

Exactly that number

Or you fail to comply with the rules

And we all know what rules are

Don’t we?

Was that question rhetorical?

Did it have anything to do with the dark hours (flowers) of the night (white)

Or was it just a question of ethics?

Or Essex?

Maybe I should have learnt to count up to a hundred

Before starting this

Thing

What seems like hours (flowers) ago.

Have I the right (white) format?

I have?

Marvellous!

So, about these white flowers

That you mentioned a while back…

I mean, how do you decide

What today’s word is?”

Well, I am a little bit known for my sense of mischievousness. But, sometimes, you have to do these things.
