Daily Prompt : Witty

In response to one-word prompt : Witty

I’ll tell you a story of a cook,

He’s the smartest man in my book.

He out-witted his master one day,

Cranes have one leg he did say.

The furious master took him to the park,

There they saw Cranes with one leg in the dark.

The master went close and yelled Shoo,

The cranes put the other leg down and flew.

Now the master said, ‘Explain dear cook’,

The witty cook replied,  ‘Did you say Shoo when you took,

The crane from the store?’

The stunned master swore,

He never heard an argument like this before!

Daily Prompt : Launch

In response to one-word prompt :  Launch

Before the launch of an election,

The parties who are in contention.

Promise the world to the naïve voters,

If elected they’d smooth all our problems.

We believe each word they say,

Off to the  booths we go to vote that  day.

We trust them because  they seem honest,

Days later we realize in disgust.

They broke all the promises they made,

We make an oath to see them fade.

But Politics is a weird game,

Those who believe are now ashamed !
