Monosyllabically Possible?

The Prompt: One at a Time—Today, write a post about the topic of your choice — using only one-syllable words.

Monosyllabically Possible?

I
might
just
fail,
but
I
will
try.

in
a
case
of
do
or
die,

If
I’m
caught
out
in
the
kelp,

It
will
do
to
just
cry
help!

But
if
you
want
to
cuss
and
shout,

it
just
won’t
work
to
go
that
route.

When
in
the
door
you
slam
your
thumb,

we’ll
see
how
far
that
you
have
come.

Your
girl
has
just
gone
on
the
lam,

and
you
just
have
to
shout
Goddamn!

      Oops! The goddamn was of course intentional, illustrating the point made in the poem, but the “really” was one I missed! It is now corrected. You have a fine eye, alphabetstory, and I can use all the editors who present themselves. Thanks for reading and commenting!! Judy

      Irony is sometimes what keeps us going, no? Thanks for commenting, Lydia. I’m having to post from different restaurants so haven’t had the time to read the blogs of others, but I will catch up one of these days. On two months of prompts???? Wishful thinking!! Judy
