Weekend Writing Prompt #118 – Song – by Sammi Cox

Weekend Writing Prompt #118 – Song – by Sammi Cox

Sammi Cox’s Rules:

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem/prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem/prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

*continuation from last weekend and a couple of months worth

 (Last Weekend I wrote) 

“Rhonda, I view you with great antipathy. The longer you stand there just laughing insanely I lose more respect. Connie has issues, but she is willing to work on them.”


As everyone stared at Rhonda, she started singing a song, one right after the other.

“Rhonda, are you ok,” Ron asked, beginning to worry about her. Rhonda is brash, and now she appears to be losing her mind. Rhonda is breaking down. She is singing the songs one right after the other, and she is not answering anyone’s questions. Her eyes are down, she is not paying attention anymore. Ron is afraid that she has snapped.

Connie and Ron look helplessly at each other. They don’t know what to do for her. Connie puts her arms around her and hugs her hard.

      Thanks Carol Anne. I thought of the residents at the long term care center where my dad is and how some of them just sing all day. I think it worked.
