Daily Prompt : Control

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Control

The Cruel Siblings

Mr. and Miss Murdstone are a strange pedigree,

They sure know how to make a little kid unfree.

David the little kid  they want to control,

Which they think is their life’s main goal.

Between the brother and  sister there is a pact,

They must not let the mother speak or react.

This is  Charles Dickens’ make-believe story,

His portrayal of the Murdstones is so  gory!

Writing 101,day four-serially lost-part three

I enjoyed teaching in Gander. The kids were wonderful. Some of them visited Florida several times.

One day David brought a large shell for me from Florida. He was a shy boy, he quietly laid it on my desk.

His friend Jamie said, “Miss did you not notice David brought you a gift from Florida, put it on your ears you will hear the sound of the ocean.”

I did and thanked David profusely for his thoughtfulness and laid it on my desk.

Next day when I entered my classroom  the first thing I noticed, the shell was missing!
