Magpie Monday





Fireworks

so small and innocent

it can still go off

looks deceive and change
  
happens frequently

a tantrum of light and sound

and the fury

of not getting what's wanted

be warned


--smh



And here are a few alternative illustrations for this poem, 
since it's decidedly multi-purpose.  
Take your pick:





toy aisle tyrant?





marital mayhem?




        
the fun-and-games of fate? 




 Take your pick!


Hope you're enjoying your Monday. 
Wanna' make it even better?
Go to Magpie Tales and enter your own piece, 
because every day is improved by a little poetry!
