Chaos in the Castle

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #586

Words:  castle, rat, laughs, cash, pass, handle, chatter,
        scrap, champ,  master, glasses, back

Chaotic chattering  
in the walls
of the castle.
Scampering, scratching,
scraps of giggle-
laughs, like tinkling
of glasses.  Things
were not being
handled as promised
back in the early
days of summer.
Master Wilhelm needs
to hire a new
Rat Champion.  Mistress
of the house threatens
to not pass another
night in the castle 
lying awake, listening
to the scurrying
rodents.  Master promises
that the next Rat
Champion will be hired
on a strictly cash-and-carry
out of all remaining rodents.

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.
