Plan B

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 –  Prompt #277 – Idioms
“For this week’s prompt, We’d like a penny for your thoughts. Choose an idiom as inspiration. Don’t cut corners, but you might want to make a long story short. Or, go ahead and burn the midnight oil and give us the whole nine yards. Just don’t sit on the fence. The ball is in your court! Choose your words wisely and write your poem!”

The world is your oyster, little pig
said the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Just then it rained cats and dogs.
The cats were let out of the bags,
and the dogs could not learn new
tricks. Little pig laughed,
wondering how they all would react
when pigs fly. Back to the drawing
board, thought the wolf.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
