An Ode for SoCS 21st August

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ode.” Find a one- or two-syllable word that rhymes with “ode,” or use the word “ode.” Have fun!

Into my kitchen he blatantly strode,
The subject of this cringeworthy ode,
No signal or even a secret code,
Nor a polite request to unload,
His cheek coming in off the dusty road
This horrible creepy crusty toad
Of a man I’d rather see K’Oed
Than rest his butt on my private commode
That happened to be inside my abode!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sooo…how do you really feel about this toad? 😉 Nice response to the ode!

    • Actually, I don’t mind frogs or toads, and remember one of the latter trying to hop into the ladies showers when we were on the marina. Toads of the two legged kind are a different matter!
