Saturday Centus - 10/22/11 Tongue-in-Cheek Poetry

Jenny Matlock! What's wrong with you this week? No curve balls, no surprises - just a prompt, 100 word limit response. You've gone soft on us.

As usual, the prompt appears below, in bold text.

Matlock's Revenge

"I planted a little story seed"
That scoundrel Jenny Matlock said
Now if I don’t get something written down,
I’ll never get to bed
The plot does swirl, the words do spin
Oh, Jenny! What an awful fix I’m in!
My brain is churning just like my gut
The rule says “PG”, my brain says “smut!”
I write sick stories, but I can’t tell ‘em
Limbic system fighting with cerebellum
Maybe I should just up and call it quits
A one-hundred word limit is simply the pits
Yet I persist in putting words to page
A frustrating endeavor for someone my age
Jenny, you're a meanie!
