'Words for Wednesday' is a writing prompt held by Delores at Under the Porch Light.
Use some or all of the week's words, write a poem or a story or part of a story, and visit Delores' current week's prompt to let her know you've joined in.
This week there were two lists; I chose the rhyming one:
The Recession and the Future
The GFC caused wide stagnation
The end of the US domination
Of economic occupation
Now things are getting better, slowly
So they say, though here in lowly
Mortal world it doesn’t seem so
Money’s tight and jobs are more so
We read the news with trepidation
Stories lend corroboration
To fears and predeterminations
Nothing seems in moderation
Is it a question of familiarisation?
What’s the secret of acclimatization
To economic deprivation
And social want and dislocation?
We hope for better, kinder days
A future mapped in better ways
We wait and wonder what will follow
When today becomes tomorrow.
