Mrs. Upscale sends her little witchlet to Business Pre-School,

Where she quickly flunks out.

A little boy in a blazer snickers;

The witchlet's mouth turns down like a stitched toy cat's.

She makes his feet webbed,

Then burns down the building.

She has to say she's sorry;

She isn't, but the lying makes her happy.


a friday 55 for G Man

I love those last lines. "She has to say she's sorry; She isn't, but the lying makes her happy." That made me smile this early morning - been there. :)

Sometimes its just easier to say 'sorry' even if it is a lie ... ;-)
Octoberlicious! Haunting images. That'll teach the boy to snicker. I bet he was so traumatized that he won't even eat a fun-sized Snickers let alone snicker at a witchlet.
Happy weekend, my Tiger-friend!
