Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #343 - Fast and Slow
"We’ll write either into a poem. But to compound things further, you are to come up with a compound word highlighting either extreme."

When Speedy Alka-Seltzer
met Speedy Gonzales
he was talked into eating
two fiery hot tamales.

He was only a snail
creeping along
who had no intention
of hastening to a crawl.

So lethargic
was Elmer Fudd,
no wonder bugs
left him in the mud.

If you happen to meet two Speedys
or a snail on a slow creep
Caution them 'bout Bugs and Elmer
or the sound of approaching Meep! Meep!


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.
