Hats with Roses

Down to the Wire by Trish Biddle

For a Word Catalyst Challenge:

Hats with Roses

Two skinny dames, glasses held high
to ponies racing, two by two.
Fortunes rest on hooves flying high.
Hats with roses and ribbons, too,
being pretty, nothing to do.
Shoulders, wallets laid bare again
betting on ponies, lose times two,
Glamour today, tomorrow pain.

  1. Very goood Jo! When I first looked at this picture the word skinny was the first one that popped into my head. Yours too I guess!

  2. I might have chosen 'anorexic', but I won't quibble... do 'anorexic' and 'pretentious' fit in the same context? Nothing skinny about your verse, however... it's filled with fullness, so great is its volume.

  3. right there with you guys on the skinny anorexic theme.... great job jo... i really enjoyed this....
