Fandango’s One Word Challenge (24 September 2020)

Prompt image for the Fandango's One Word Challenge prompt

I might have been a sailor,
Adventuring on the sea.
Or, perhaps, a dentist,
With a pristine surgery.

I might have been a florist,
Up to my neck in blooms,
Or, perhaps, a CEO,
Commanding the boardroom.

I could preach to you the gospels
With vehement conviction,
Or perhaps I’d be a weatherman,
With dubious prediction.

I might have been a lawyer,
Interpreting the law,
You might see me in the courtroom,
And admire me with awe.

I might have been a policeman,
Solving every crime,
Or, perhaps, the Fat Controller,
Making all the trains on time.

I might have been a Pastry Chef,
Preparing your dessert,
Or, perhaps a secret spy
Who lives his life covert.

I might have been a plumber,
Who would fix your leaking tap.
But instead I fear you must make do,
With me writing all this crap!

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC), vehement.

          1. That’s what I like about blogging….we can communicate with each other, inspire and provide food for thought. It’s like a big group of friends, chatting, reading each other’s thoughts as we go through on our life’s journey. 😊
