'I'm not a chicken' - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 47

Jenny Matlock

Scroll down past my Saturday Centus text for week 47 to read Mrs. Matlock's instructions. Here is my SC-text for week 47:
------
Johnny, Mickey, Tommy and Louie were out kickin',
Telling little kids 'You're a chicken! You're a chicken!'

Little Timmy Thompson was dared to climb a tree.
Johnny climbed first, said:'Look at me! Look at me!'

'You're a chicken! You're a chicken!' they chanted all four.
Until suddenly someone, Timmy's mom, opened a door!

'Scram you nasty, rotten clods of dirt!' Timmy's mom quietly said.
And Johnny, Mickey, Tommy and Louie almost wished that they were dead.

The boys disappeared, while Timmy climbed the tree.
'I'm not a chicken!' he said, 'Look at me! Look at me!'

Mrs. Matlock's instructions:
Welcome to week forty-seven of Saturday Centus. How are you today? Feeling complacent? Feeling like I'm going to throw another easy prompt your way? Well... Technically... I could... BUT then you would get all bored and say, "Wow, that SC thing is getting really boring because she never challenges us!" So... Since I would never, ever want our friendship to part ways out of boredom, let's try something different this week. How about poetry. The rhyming kind. Like Dr. Seuss...on the loose...with a moose...in a caboose. Hey. I saw that eyeroll. C'mon. It'll be fun. I will give you an easy prompt for inspiration, OK? The prompt this week is... I'm not a chicken... What do you mean that's a hard prompt? That is a totally easy prompt. I could have used the word 'orange' which has no words that rhyme with it whatsoever. I gave you the word chicken which of course rhymes with ... ummm... ummm... OK, I know a lot of rhyming words...I just can't tell you because that would be cheating. You can use this prompt and UP TO 100 additional words to write a poem in rhyme. Just keep your poetry PG and try to visit as many of the other links as you can! Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog. Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Monday's Child # 38


Tea Party Illustration by Fernando Falcone

This is Monday' Child # 38:
------

To be a fly on the wall at this tea-party! The March Hare, the Hatter and the Dormouse all sat at a table laid for tea. It was a very large table, but the three were crowded together and cried 'No room!' Alice sat down next to the March Hare. The Hatter sang:

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at.

Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.

The March Hare and Hatter end up trying to stuff the Dormouse into the tea-pot. Alice left the Tea-Party and found the Queen's Coquet-Ground.

Best wishes,
Anna

Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 46

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to week forty-six of Saturday Centus.

To read Mrs. Jenny Matlock's instructions, please scroll past my SC-text, which is here:
------
It had been a long winter for Sanna Rumsten, because of the divorce-preceedings and move from their beautiful townhouse with crystal chandeliers and hardwood floors. Wanting desparately to get away, she rented a smaller apartment with only linoleum floors. It was crowded with her possessions. She would have to throw alot more overboard than just a husband to make this work.

It was morning in the new home.
The curtain parted as she drew the strings revealing the sunlit street with tatoo-parlor, used paperback-bookstore and kebab-restaurant. Not the most fashionable neighbourhood, but what choice did she have? Sanna and the children were together.

Monday's Child # 37


Illustration by Clara Burd

This is Monday' Child # 37:
------

Clara stretched as much at she could to reach up to the hanging flower-pot over at the neighbours, the Robertsons. The basket holding the pot with the peach-coloured begonias was knocked off the hook and fell down. Now, Clara had to try to replace it. But it was hopeless, as she was too short.
She knocked on the door and waited.
After several very long minutes, the door opened and Mrs. Robertson said: 'Why Clara, what are you doing here?'

"I'm sorry Mrs. Robertson. I tried to find the key and the basket fell down."
'That's alright, dear. Let me help you. There. Come in and have some milk and cake!'

Gilbert Smith - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 45

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to week forty-five of Saturday Centus.

Please read Mrs. Matlock's instructions after my text which follows here:
------
"What did you see?" asked the officer.
"I just happened to look up, when I saw the globs of snow falling from the roof and understood that they must be shovelling. It scared me when I saw him."
"Why do you say that?"
"They usually have a safety-harness and line in case they slip. He was doing a silly dance near the edge and did not have the the safety-rope attached. Then he tripped and fell."
"Did you know the deceased?"
"Yes. Gilbert Smith's his name.
He had never been accused of being intelligent..."
"Thank you for time," said the policeman and turned to interview another witness.

Bedtime Story - Monday's Child # 36



This week we are honored to have an illustration from a fellow blogger "lissa". She has kindly given permission for Monday's Child to highlight her drawing called Bedtime Story... Thank you "lissa".

Here is my text for this week's picture-prompt:

Bedtime Story

It's seven o'clock and time for bed,
My teeth are brushed, my prayers are said,

Pulling up my compfy cover,
I say 'Go'night' to my mother,

With rabbit ears upon my head,
I hold a book that's not yet read!

------

Best wishes,
Anna
