Saturday Centus - 2 July posted Wednesday Oh, say, can

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to another Saturday Centus (Wednesday) submission ...after all our 4th of July celebrations and camping last weekend...I'm posting after my usual Saturday post !

Oh, and say, Jenny from (Off On My Tangent) with her "Saturday Centus" has given a prompt in honor of the 4th of July (she says, a pseudo-patriotic theme) "Oh, say, can you see," using those five words and up to 100 more any manner, style, song....or poem, it all works! 

If you feel like posting your own just go here

Here is my offering:

Oh, say, it was the right night for a perilous fight
between two baker-extraordinaires tonight-
while each designed an energizing delicious-delight..
one smelled like a woodsy aroma spiked just right
and the other like incense flavored tea....!

One of the bakers splashed quite
freely, his sweet fragrant bottle of a secret solution
which smelled distinctively like pollution
while the other baker's resembled mud....
and by dawn's early light......
you heard with a sigh
Oh, say, can you see,
their crazy concoctions weren't the solution
and could never be
anything but, mud pie.

What a witty and different twist on this prompt! I love that you took it in a direction other than the obvious. Your words are very well put together.

Thanks for stopping by CJ S, Cloudia and Laurie! I so appreciate your comments and almost didn't post this one, since I was soooo late! But Jenny's prompt was so cool, for the 4th I had to get mine in too!

This is wonderful! I love how you twisted this around. Really great! Sorry I'm so, so late!
