Last Saturday 10th Sept the writers met again. All eight of us had completed our homework , (the fall)- some serious, some deeply theological, some poetry, some prose and some funny. Some were about autumn, a fall in the garden or the fall of mankind.
My effort was sort of funny but also serious –
Mr Hillock Discarded procrastinated upon a continuous and usually vertical structure often made of brick or stone. The aforementioned Mr. Hillock Discarded the experienced a massive and terminal downfall. The entire party of regal equestrians and every Royal cavalry-man (not to be too sexist, these days it might have been women) were entirely unable to resurrect Mr. Discarded again. In this historically imaginative exercise they completely failed to re-unite yolk, albumen and shell.
Or to put in simpler terms –
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again.
They should’ve gone to ….Jesus
Only He can restore the broken.
Everyone seemed to guess it by the time I came to the equestrian bit.
Homework – a piece or poem entitled ‘Blue’. Watch this space.
Carol – the nursery rhyme distroyer
