VerseLove – Day 23 of 30

Our host for VerseLove at http://www.ethicalela.com today is Stefani Boutelier, who inspires us to write Metaphor Poems. I have the Metaphor Dice App on my phone, and my roll of the dice was bad data, delusional, touchdown. I checked the jumpstart option and went in a different direction.

False Start Replay 

Bad data
is a
delusional
touchdown
that will flat
have you
optimistically
living
full-fledged lies. 

Like when you
balance your checkbook 

It’s a beautiful day
when you add that
extra few million
on top of
your regular
paycheck. 

You come home
to a majestic
new mansion
with
mid-century modern
furnishings
and shiny faucet fixtures
roll up to your
four-car garage
in your spiffy new Porsche
and park
by the money tree. 

You celebrate
your sudden success
as your private chef
serves you lobster
and a drink
with a little umbrella in it. 
And you wonder……

you just wonder….. 

how did I score this castle??

Bad data. 

A delusional touchdown. 

The hand roll
ruling: 

“False start
on the offense.

Huge penalty.”

The refs revoke the play.

1 Timothy 6:6-8 

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
