FEAR by Christine Bialczak ©2020 CBialczak Poetry

Perhaps a treat
Or maybe a steak
The feeling of dread
I just cannot fake

Why is he here
Waiting for me to drop
Should I call a fireman,
Or maybe a cop.

I may be stuck now
But it can’t be for long
If I get eaten alive
You’ll know you were wrong.

My effort was


You know that I think your dog’s great
(When she’s safely behind your front gate)
Well, it seems that she’s out
And wandering about
And I think she wants me for he plate

There’s no need for you to feel dread
It’s well after ten, she’s been fed
She’s in a good mood
She’s well stuffed with food
Just leave her, she’ll go to her bed

Sincerely, I do beg your pardon
But your precious is now in my garden
I’ve had to scamper
On top of my camper
And the climb up that ladder’s a hard ‘un.

Let me tell you a thing ’bout my pet
As a Staffy, she’s soft as you’ll get
She’s cuddly and warm
And never does harm.
Come down from your perch and don’t fret.

I hear what you’re saying to me, Ma’am
And I know how you love your wee lamb
I will feel better
As soon as you get her
Till then, I’ll stay right where I am.


On to this week’s challenge: Using this photo as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; even just a caption for the photograph. Either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at before 6pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here.

Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries next Monday.
