This Aint Disney

Bokeh Texture ~ regularjane

Bibbity, bobbity……
This aint Disney….
I’ll cut to the chase.

Mix moon wink, cheap wine
and a cigarette,
with three breaths of delusion
until he looks like Johnny Depp.

Make use of preplanned party favors
when steam rises from flesh or inebriation
mistakes groping for romance.


Spell’s possible side effects:
A morning after headache and
spontaneous questioning of
“What the hell am I doing naked
with a troll wrapped around my legs!?!”

You made these words count, for sure, and told quite the story! Love the moon wink and cheap wine till he looks like Johnny Depp!

bibbity..bobbity...BOOM! ;-)

Margaret said...

Mistakes groping for romance! Ha. This might even convince someone to quit partying!

Kay L. Davies said...

Well done!

Mama Zen said...

This is hilarious! Not that anything like this ever happened to me, of course . . .

Maggie Grace said...

Love it, Susie! I love the 'instructions,' the pre-planned party favors, and the ever-apalling consequences of playing around with powerful potations. Second stanza is especially vivid for me, and the ending cracked me up.

Lolamouse said...

Funny and scary both! Going to bed with Johnny Depp and waking with a troll is definitely a nightmare! At least it wasn't Edward Scissorhands!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Haha! Yes, indeed, it's the side-effects one must worry about.

Hannah said...

Laugh out stinkin' loud! Love the ending...so true...this passion for a moment can be a horrible history to face. Nicely done, Susie!

Susan said...

A marvelous way to disarm a troll! (but I think I'll pass.)

Helen said...

... you'll need a towel to cover up that troll! Hysterical poetry.
