It’s time for Friday Fictioneers. Thanks go to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who selects the weekly photo prompt and conducts the Friday Fiction choristers. My contribution is below. Tune up your vocal chords, follow the imaginary bouncing ball and sing along. Then check out the link and you’ll just want to sing some more.


Decor dilemmas

Don’t you see, it’s not right

Can’t you understand my plight?

I don’t want to fight,

but you can’t have it all your way.


We’ve got oak on the floors

We’ve got walnut for the doors,

teak and ash galore,

but on this I must have my say.


Maple trims are fine,

and I don’t mind pine –

for the tables and chairs it’s alright.


I gave you a free hand

when you claimed my tastes were bland;

but now I must take a stand,

and I won’t have a wooden light.

    • Yes, I think there’s sufficient plot in there to qualify for Friday Fictioneers’ guidelines. It rocks along much better if you sing it. Thank you for commenting.


    • I recently saw a house advertised for sale with wood everywhere. It was warm and cosy, but I think I’d feel the walls closing in with so much of it. I like light, airy buildings. Crystal chandeliers would add a sparkle.


    • I sat up in bed after midnight with my Ipad on my lap putting this together. I had to control my giggling so as not to disturb my other half. I did have fun with it, so I’m glad you enjoyed it too. Elvis is a bit cute with that puppet. How young he is!!!

    • Oh, Irene, you are clever. I’m glad you see the grain in both – I was very strict with myself to follow the rhythm and make the rhyme work properly. Thankk you for your lovely feedback.
