Words:  heat, now, ask, wee, courageous, sly, chain, storyteller, tendrils, yesterday, jail, savor

Favorite game
of wee Wendy
is Monopoly.
Yesterday’s game
became heated.
First, when asked
to choose a piece,
dispute arose over
the silver shoe.
Chain of events
moved on to sly Sid,
Wendy’s creepy cousin–
tendrils of greasy
blonde hair stuck to
his face–who savored
nothing more than
winning. In a courageous
choice, Wendy built hotels.
Sid was jailed, and I?
I felt lucky to simply
be your storyteller.
