Wordle 236 and Haibun Monday


“Shut your eyes.  Put one foot in front of the other and follow the line until I tell you to stop.  Hmm!  You’ll have to do better than that, your right foot is a country mile from the line.  Careful you don’t fall.  Oopsy Daisy!”  The policeman made a sign to his colleague to help the drunk rise to his unsteady feet and set him moving again.

“There has to be a better way than this of proving a man has taken a drink too many.  When I have a spare minute I’ll have to find a way to measure alcohol on the spot.”  The PC had a flair for invention, akin to casting spells.  And he invented the gadget known to all addicts of car chasing cop programmes on TV as the breathalyzer.

Blow into this, please ─
keep going, keep going, Sir.
Over the limit.

I’ve clumsily combined the Sunday Whirl wordle words with a cautionary tale for Haibun Monday at the dVerse poet’s pub.  I’m rather ashamed

    Viv, our Haibun challenge needed to have one of her photos included, and the poem written must have something referencing the photo. As this is a specific requirement, I am going to have to de-link your post. But the challenge is open all week…feel free to return.

  4. I’m dyslexic and cannot walk a straight line, whether my eyes are open or closed. I am a sober failure! heh heh. I chuckled reading.
