Dale, Daisy and Date Night

“Time is short in my writing world just now. However, I did find a few minutes to write a bit of fun.”

I wrote this poem for the following prompts.
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Stage Fright
Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge — Forward – understood – Reliable
Your Daily Word — Kaput
Fandango’s One Word Challenge — Wrap

Dale, Daisy and Date night

It was Dale’s first-ever date night
He had eagles for butterflies
Worse his car had stage fright
Something of a bad surprise

Daisy had always been reliable
Gleaming with her flowery neon wrap
Sure her tyres were a little pliable
But she was far from scrap

Daisy always put her best gear forward
Although she grumbled in reverse
Driving, Dale never uttered a swearword
Daisy was a joy and never a curse

Then she went kaput on date night
Dale tried assault and flattery
Daisy sounded quite contrite
Having killed her battery

Dale connected his jump leads
Gave Daisy a blast of gas
His date night was in the weeds
But she burbled with a roar of sass

Dale arrived at the restaurant very late
Fortunately, his date understood
She thought his apology great
And date night turned out rather good

Don’t forget Holly Ward investigates, Stolen Treasures is out on Amazon now!

A recent bank robbery. A saddened man. A coded message. Can they all be connected?
Young Sleuth Holly Ward is determined to help the man. It’s not long before she too comes under assault from a group of dangerous individuals. In the face of intimidation, abduction and even murder can Holly solve the clues and catch the criminals before she becomes the next Stolen Treasure?

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!
