My good friend, Delores, of The Feathered Nest, issues six challenge words every Wednesday, that we participants have to make head and/or tails out of.
Usually we make both.
Here are this week's words, which just happen to coincide with the start of this year's Calgary Stampede.
Recalcitrant, fangs, dithering, glassy, rodeo, wet
And this is my response:
Today, if they’ve dried Calgary out,
‘S the day when people cheer and shout.
This day begins the rodeo,
Come and join me, we will go!
No dithering on which things to see,
There’s something there for you and me.
There’s sexy cowboys by the score,
With hats and jeans and so much more . . .
Recalcitrant, okay, I know,
But still they have that ‘something’ glow.
Each one a glassy, shining sight.
For people who for ‘country’ yearn,
There’s much to see and more to learn.
[Regrets to vampire fans. While there,
No fangs are present anywhere.]
So come to Calgary, it’s not wet,
The floods are gone, the stage is set.
Come see (and get your money’s worth),The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!
