Satuday Centus - 07/16/11 - Living and Writing on a Budget

Things are tough all over. Even Jenny Matlock has had to cut her word count by 75%.

We have just 25 words to work with, not including the prompt (appearing below, in bold text).


I’m not getting any younger
And I refuse to grow more old
In my freezer, cryogenics on a budget
Brrr! Who knew it’d be so COLD!

  9. Dear June,

    Great poem, quite funny, as well as serious, and so far, only the second writer I've found here, who has touched on this theme.

    Best wishes,

  11. How did you do that in only 25 words! This was sooooo great! And, oddly, it felt like so many more words then you actually used!
