Flash 55-Too many words from Raven

With a nod to Raven and Quilly

Arthur Prefix entered his drawings of Chicken Noodle Soup ,
The Cow Jumped Over the Moon, Flowering Plum Tree,

the Tigers Wench, Diamond Errings, Jump Rope, And Bats in the Belfry,

in the fine art festival.

Then had organic tea with a paragon of virtue from The Dutch Treat Book Club to do her income tax.

And Now for something completely different. A flash 55 quivel. Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines

Business as Usual

A specious argument or two
Sublunary though they always be
Meant comity again was through
But such speech was free
The Senator was all upset
Vowed revenge on the floor
as angry as can get
He had slammed the door
The bill would never see
A vote to set it free

Bad for you and me.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.


  1. You are without a doubt gifted my friend. Even for a Dragon that likes trout :)

  2. I thought sure enough the Senator was going to throw his shoe!!!

    My 55 is posted...scroll down below the Friday's Show n Tell to find it [I'm thinking a dragon like you may enjoy the firey sky I have today]. Have a great weekend.

  3. You make it look so easy Fandango - however I know it takes talent to do all this! Great stuff my fire breathing friend. :)

  4. I like your post you are quite creative. My 55 is up. TGIF

  5. I have a dragon tattooed upon my back.

    Would that allow me to be a fly-on-the-wall at your dragon meetings?

    I'll be quiet. I just want to watch the dragon-ness.

  6. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. :)

  7. A Comity of Non-Errors!!!

    Great 55 once again Sir Dragon...

    Thanks for participating so tastefully.

    I hope you are having fun with these, we all are...Have a Wonderful Week-End...Galen

  8. that is a very creative 55ve. :)

  9. WOW! Did the dragons have to VOTE on words to leave in and take out this week? They did a wonderful job - I'm just wondering how it all went.

    Love their Quivel Drivel Senate Snivel too!

  10. I'm not quite sure what goes on here, but I'm taking the time to find out.

    I liked the 5 words a line for eleven lines-easier than counting 55 words. :))
