Have Mercy!

Written for:  Miz Quickly

"Your mission today is to include ”it won’t happen again (name of your choice)” in your writing."


I'm deeply sorry, Your Majesty.  
It won't happen again.  Oh my,
your face is as red as
the roses I painted . . . by
mistake of course.  There's
steam coming out of your
ears.  I fear a stroke.  Please
don't poke me, I'm only a
playing card.  If you say,
'off with his head', I will
only be worth half.

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.
