NaPoWriMo Day Six

Day Six

TheSunday Whirl – Wordle 155
Strap Swing power tough diamond waterfall suspend unit zip detail barrier pleat

SEATTLE WASN'T LIKE THIS
She’s always had this thing about swing
String her from the lamppost suspend her there
Hear her scream about how tough things can be
Between lovers on the sea shore tonight

Right the devil’s in the detail making
Taking everything back to his unlit
Unit deep deep down in the dark blue sea
Seattle wasn't like this yesterday

Day after day I think about the strip
Strap it on my belt paint it on my lip
Zip under the barrier and pluck a
Pucker diamond from the waterfall

Almost done this whirl is fun to complete
Pleat and power I’ll leave her swinging there

    1. I'm singing it now, if it helps you I think it sounds better if you change She's and her to you.

  7. Plucking pucker diamonds sounds like a fun pursuit--especially if the one offering the puckers is, shall we say, tasty.

    1. Yeah, he's a proper Johnny Reggae, with his two tone tonic strides.

  8. I also enjoyed the capture of the last sound with the beginning of a new line. A fun read and I applaud your singing.

  10. Clara Petacci, Mussolini's 'mistress', comes to mind... She must have felt the same way...
