Written for: Poets United Pantry of Poetry and Prose (posted by Magaly)
“This season of transitions and thinning veils, always inspires me to try new things, to challenge old thoughts, to mix-it-up and mingle… Keeping that in mind, I invite you to write poetry and prose.
So, for today’s prompt, let us write a new story, or essay, or article, or poem set in the month of October (our prose pieces should be 369 words or fewer).”
It was October First.
The Green Whirlies came out
with a profound thirst
for a pitcher of blood with spout.
The Hoolie Goolies put up a fight.
Our planet is off limits to you,
try Planet 9; it’s out of our sight.
Our blood supply is low now too.
When the Green Whirlies landed,
they discovered that Planet 9
had burnt up monsters, candid
pledges of the sun, ready to dine.
