The following was written for a Wordle challenge over at Midlovemisery’s Menagerie.

Words for the wordle are as follows:
1. Bad
2. Turn
3. Cry
4. Learn
5. Thersitical- scurrilous; foul-mouthed; grossly abusive.
6. Ropes
7. Flail
8. Half
9. Trade
10. Distance
11. Fantasy
12. Purchase

I had to make a purchase today

but the shop was quite a distance away

In my mind, it was a fantasy

to buy or trade was costly in actuality

Finding the street, I made a bad turn

Step-monster was thersitical, said I’d never learn

Half of me wanted to cry

Thinking I might flail, wither, and die

Would I ever learn the ropes?

Learn to drive, was there any hope?
