Doom – Wordle 166

The Tarot cards levitate above the table,
hesitate between dark and bright futures,
blood and plague, or
dancing, kissing and seduction,
penny pinching or wealth beyond dreams.

The dreadful creature
lifts his gun, aims, squeezes:
the cards have decided.

You’ll find other wordles, no doubt less gloomy, at Brenda’s Sunday Whirl

    Not much of a wordler myself, V, but I gotta say: you nailed this one.


  13. oldegg says:

    Those thirteen words have a lot to answer for. Once they were in my brain nothing good would come out certainly not a love story! You seem to have had the same problem!

    And a return oo from me..this is such a cliff hanger..and so punchily written..could visualise the scene and was of course left am wondering – mon dieu!


  15. Yikes! Makes me feel much more sanguine about playing chess!
    Actually mine was a bit gloomy – one of those Wordles, I expect.
