Huh? What is this contest we speak of? Well for some years now we have been loyal followers of Evil Squirrel’s blog. Always wacky, always fun, and for several years he has had a writing contest he calls the “Contest of Whatever”……….this is the 8th year for said contest and we have participated in and entered several of them. Interested in hearing the background on this contest? CLICK HERE.
The theme is always a challenge…………this year the theme is “X” – yes – that’s the theme – what does that mean? Well I suppose anything you want it to. I thought about this for WEEKS before this morning being struck by an idea – weird indeed but an idea nonetheless. I therefore present my official entry which some of you won’t be surprised to learn is a poem!
“X” Challenge from Evil Squirrel, March, 2021 from Pam at onespoiledcat.wordpress.com
The Exorcist’s job is quite a messy one
Green slime, rotating heads, just plain aren’t fun
Dealing with the devil is not for the faint of heart
Casting evil out of the possessed is quite an art!
Levitating bodies, foul language and smells
Knocking on the doors of the entrance to hell
Over time I should think it takes quite a toll
Most would seek early retirement from this dangerous role
I wonder if the Exorcist after years of his craft
Needs to be exorcized himself so he doesn’t go daft
Being an Exorcist’s Exorcist – now that boggles the mind
I wonder if getting a life insurance carrier is tough to find???
Evil Squirrel – thanks for continuing with this contest every year – it’s always a challenge but always fun.
