A while ago, I subscribed to The Daily Post which, if you didn’t know, gives daily and weekly writing prompts. I’ve written a few posts based on the prompts, but those will remain in my draft folder likely forever. And you’re welcome for that.

It was said only he could make a wasp mellow.
Alas one day, he let out a bellow,
“Oh no! Why is my prized cello yellow?”
