NaPoWriMo #9: your mission

Read the original prompt at


Pass the ugly jug
on a winter’s night
with it’s bitter brew
choke down the burn
& strum another tune.

Light a torch
& call the dancers
from the fringe
with a gypsy jazz love song.

Around the campfire
watch flames meet
dance together
as marionettes
put on the show
to burn down the house.

The tale in this tome
we’ll stow under the rug
so as not to startle
the talon wearing carrion
into a feeding frenzy.
