THREELEGS – PART 3

THREELEGS – PART 3

One! announces ThreeLegs, eyeballing Βία up and down and all overs before lurching on.

Two! he starts along the cages, carefully counting off three…and four… until he reaches number five. He stops, checking the five toes of his one front paw, glances back at the cages to reconfirm the tally and lurches on.  By the time he’s done counting up to fifteen toes on all three paws he stops again, scratching contemplatively at a tic at the stump where his fourth leg should be hanging. 

Right then…one! he starts over, counting off his front paws. Etcetera. 

Hobbling to the end of the barn, counting off his toes, resetting everytime he reaches the end of three paws. Finally to arrive back at the starting point.

Fifteen he concludes.  A grand total of three paws worth of guests.

Wot a muttwit Βία grins.

ThreeLegs bangs his head against her bars that’s not nice

Yor not nice her hackles up, grin curling into snarl.

Before ThreeLegs gets ‘round to defending his important ledgerings an unmistakable sniffy-red pervades the barn, a colour darker than the night outside.

“what’sallthisnoise,then?” scritches Freddy.

Just doin’ the ledgerings, yor honours whines ThreeLegs before receiving a lusty kick aimed at his head.  ThreeLegs’ three legs back him out of range in the nick of time.

Freddy pokes his eyeballs all ‘round abouts the barn before they stop at Scroggy.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 34: (STABLE) in the D rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

It is time for Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge and this week it’s the word Stable in the D line. As ever we may, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of Grace and Slip which again I chose to do.

Banished

What evil caused the fall from grace
What caused the fight that banished those
And shut the doors of heaven closed.
Evicted, slipped to earth disgraced.
They were no longer pure or chased.
They lost their wings, they lost their souls.
Still immortal, yet no more whole.
Heaven rent in two, un stable
The bloody war, truth no fable.
The vanquished lost their holy place.
