All At Sea

Photograph of an old row-boat, left to decay on the beach.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 December 2020, impetuous.

In attempting to hurry the sale,
Ship’s captain left port in a gale,
His decision impetuous,
To Sail waters tempestuous,
Sealed his fate in a watery gaol.

    1. thanks. It’s funny, People seem to. I’m not sure why but my stats have gone up since I started trying them. One of the plusses of doing them is that they provide a nice short response to the prompts – I don’t think anybody would bother if my posts took 10 minutes to read through.

        1. No. I have infrequently opened posts which my reader says would take an hour to read. And, of course, it make you wonder who exactly they’re writing for…
          I think it’s especially true of prompt responses – if someone has 20 responses they want to read, they’re not going to spend more than a few minutes on each.
