Flash 55

With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were really, really less than wonderful -29 words)

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.
Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55.This week's words are: records, impulsive, really cool, bread crumbs, angels, Sponge Bob, magical moment, back and forth, suffering, good fences make good neighbors, side effects are generally mild, clingy, rooster, samples, curiosity

The Quick Cure

Doctor Sponge Bob of the Angels Magical Moment Society prescribed really cool bread crumbs dipped in rooster blood for people suffering from impulsive, clingy , curiosity who no longer believed that good fences make good neighbors.
According to records of samples passed back and forth the side effects are generally mild and very quickly pass over.


And Now for something completely different. And we mean completely different.
First there is poetry- written well by a few experts. You know it when you see it.

Then there is poetic drivel- written by many. Lots of fun and often punny.

Then below them all is quivel.
The following is quivel.
It in no way even pretends to be poetry or drivel.
Instead it is something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words.
In this case it is also a flash 55 quivel since it has elevel lines with exactly five words to a line. Click on the special words for definitions. Please, again, note this is a quivel it does not pretend to be a poem or even poetic drivel.

The Word Fight

Put an operiment on it
Or I will surely quit
Ambition made her speak thus
Raise such a foolish fuss
Pessundate my work you know
Leave no place to go
Her amarulence drives her now
Have to stop her somehow
Hitonious now this silly thing
Needs new song to sing
Let the past take wing


  1. Ah! Love the 55 and the quivel is not Drivel!
