This week's word on Sunday Scribblings is Scary

I’m a little bit wary
of things that are scary
of ghoolies and ghosties and things
The ultimate fright
is a bump in the night
and a certain old lady with wings.

She’s Mary the Fairy
she’s haggard and hairy
and wizened and wrinkled and smells
She’s not like the others
She’s got seven brothers
who make her cast unpleasant spells

With a wave of her wand
kids fall in the pond
and they trip and they skid and they fall
Her brothers just giggle
when her nose does a wiggle
and lets out the air from their ball.

I’m hoping one day
that she’ll fly away
with her brothers her potions and things
There’ll be one less thing scary
when Mary the Fairy
takes off with a flap of her wings

G'Day Rosey, cute post this week. Your Mary the Fairy looks like an elderly version of the tattoo my dear daughter has on the side of her tummy. I was absolutely horrified when I first saw it. But now I am used to it.

Mary the Fairy
Sounds horribly scary.
I hope she stays out of my way.
I bet her chin's hairy,
I bet she's contrary!
And her hair has the texture of hay!

Rosey, you are giving Keith a run for his money with your poetry. However, you dare not compete with me.

Get that??
