Santa Sees RED


It's Saturday Centus time again, and Jenny has definitely given our new prompt a Christmas twist. I'm adding a little twist of my own by adding my 100 words in verse this time. As always, the prompt is in red.

Santa Sees Red

What was he thinking? OMG!
Elves are so 2009.
I ordered Christmas detailing,
not funny valentine.

"Deck the sleigh with boughs of HOLLY,"
is distinctly what I said.
Now it's like a float!––with roses...
hearts and flowers 'round my head.

"Live a little! Change is good," he chirped.
"Let romance take the reins!"
(Next he'll have me trading
conversation hearts for candy canes.)

"He's in love," coos Mrs. Santa.
So what? We're in love ourselves.
Christmas should be Christmas,
not a platform for besotted elves!

Everyone loves a lover, embrace the feeling! The whole holly thing is so cliched.

FUNNY! I don't like change either. Bring back the holly, you besotted elves! :)

Ha!!! You are too funny. Love it.

So funny Sue. I love the thoughts of little Mr & Mrs elves- and ones all twitterpated, decorating the sleigh like one would paint a water tower in the south- grand declarations of love!

Koby said...

I too laughed out loud at your take on this week's prompt...great job!

Darlene said...

Different, as usual, but that is what your centus offerings are and that is why they are so good. Really did love this one!

Awwww. I think you're just all mushy because of your Anniversary.

But whatever the reason, this was amazing. A difficult prompt, 100 words AND in rhyme.

Geez girl.

You just set a high bar for the rest of us.

Hope you're enjoying some after Christmas rest and relaxation!

Tina said...

LOL. Actually out loud. With a snort. In the coffee shop. Amazing! I hated that prompt, and you not only did a poem, with rhyme, and but it was great! I bow down to your supremacy!
