It Won’t Happen Again Mr Herron

Your mission today is to include ”it won’t happen again (name of your choice)” in your writing.

I will say, that my first thought was comic. A series of improbable rental catastrophes, punctuated with that phrase. Then it occurred to me that it could be much more. A last chance warning from the boss. A last chance warning from the voters. A summation after King Kong ran amok. A description of a mass of extinct flowers.

I still lean toward comic refrain, but it is fascinating that phrases can be such chameleons.

  1. It Won’t Happen Again, Gym

    No more running at top speeds
    No more girls’ basketball team
    No more mini-trampolines.
    No more tumbling or balance beams.

    My bones are brittle, I tend to fall
    I’ll stick to walking around the mall.

    1. Debi… Walking is good. Running I’ll let the younger folks do.
      At least though in a Kayak you are sitting – I had mentioned to my hubby to try stand up paddle boarding… and that well, it was nixed!

      Fun title! I haven’t belonged to a Gym in an Oodle of Ages.


  2. Have Mercy!

    I’m deeply sorry, Your Majesty.
    It won’t happen again. Oh my,
    your face is as red as
    the roses I painted . . . by
    mistake of course. There’s
    steam coming out of your
    ears. I fear a stroke. Please
    don’t poke me, I’m only a
    playing card. If you say,
    ‘off with his head’, I will
    only be worth half.
