I made it through the 1st Round of the NYC Rhyming Story Challenge; this was my entry for the 2nd Round assignment. This time, I had 3 days to compose a 500-word (max) rhyme incorporating these prompts: Horror (Genre) / Cure-all (Theme) / Neglected (Emotion). Wow... not anything remotely in my wheelhouse. SPOILER ALERT: nothing humorous in this post. at. all.
Murder Most Fowl
Someone tried to smuggle a gun inside a raw chicken -- inside a suitcase?
O Undistinguish’d Space
I submitted this to a contest: the Rhyming Story Challenge 2022. 8 days to create a 600-word rhyming story, incorporating the prompts of an assigned Genre (Sci-Fi), Theme (Adrift) and Emotion (Insignificant). Waiting to see if I advance to subsequent rounds!
