Handcuffs by Rita Marie Recine

 

They placed the handcuffs on  my wrist.

was not able to  make a fist
placed my fingers together ..

there was no weather

whatever was said .. it was wrong

the pain  felt crude …and strong

They all laughed … it was my bachelorette

I was going to be married

so the ball and chain, handcuffs whatever they chose

after all  to the occasion i rose

it was my bachelorette

I was going to be married

the night went on without a hitch

wait till I get that girl who put me those handcuffs

what a bitch

Poetry Prompt 18 by Rita Marie Recine

(Puff the Magic Dragon lyrics)
pastedImage(1)
(by Peter, Paul and Mary)

Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff
Oh, Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff’s gigantic tail
Noble kings and princes would bow whene’er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name
Oh, Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant’s rings make way for other toys
One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff, that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar
His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane
Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave
So Puff, that mighty dragon, sadly slipped into his cave
Oh, Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali
