The Child’s Ice Cream!


Ice CreamHave you ever entered a competition and seen your entry come to naught? Recently I entered a poetry competition judged by a famous poet. Despite working on this simple verse for hours, editing, re-editing, trimming words with my pen-knife, even deleting whole sentences, it disappeared without trace! However I’m not bothered as, like a meal, it’s all a question of taste and flavour! The subject was food, in eight verses or less. I throw it out to you to judge. Bonne Appetite…

She screams:
I scream:
She screams.

I waiver:
“What flavour?”
