‘A Silly Ditty’ by Cathy MacKenzie

Welcome to The Spot Writers. This month, the task is to use the five words: toilet paper, TV, midget, flamenco, dragon.

Cathy’s novels, WOLVES DON’T KNOCK, a psychological drama, and MISTER WOLFE, the darkly dark sequel or stand-alone (18+), are available on Amazon. MY BROTHER, THE WOLF, the last of the series, is scheduled for release in 2022/2023.


“A Silly Ditty” by Cathy MacKenzie

I have a dear friend

Who talks of midgets

And silly sillies, widgets,

Whatever tales she can blend.


She spiels many words,

Stories of dragons

And fire-red wagons,

Even bizarre birds.


She likes to dance

Flamenco style

Down the grocery aisle,

As if in a magical trance.


Once during a crazy caper

She tangoed and twirled

And appallingly hurled,

Cleaning up with toilet paper.


If I’d had a camera near,

I would’ve taken photos

For she’d staged such a pose

That made my eyes tear.


I said I should film her,

Put the footage on TV

For all the world to see,

Create a comical stir.


She changed her ways,

Watches what she does,

Not wanting to create a buzz

For the rest of her days.
