Daily Prompt: Caper

In response to one-word prompt : Caper

To celebrate her success, she did a little caper,

They thought she was the best student on paper,

Her friends tried a practical joke,

She dismissed them with one stroke,

No wonder she was the best student on paper!

Daily Prompt : Tether

In response to one-word prompt : Tether

Sometimes I wonder if we kept our dog tiger in a leash, he’d live longer. We let him roam around freely, we thought restraining him could break his spirit. But such freedom came with a price, his restless self cost him his life. Someone ran him over and moved on.

We were heartbroken knowing we’d never see him in front of our Dad’s horse drawn carriage, trying to stop the guy from taking Dad to work.

Daily Prompt : Wheel

In response to one-word prompt : Wheel

The man drove his vehicle so fast,

One wheel came off with a blast.

He stopped to see what was wrong,

The traffic stopped with a loud bong,

And  the cop gave him a ticket for driving so fast!

Daily Prompt : Local

In response to one-word prompt : Local

Here in my neighborhood, we have a small strip mall, there are a few stores here, but most of the space is  for parking. There was a time when there were no parking meters,  this convenience is no longer available because  the mayor thought it is a good opportunity to make money.

There are city workers whose only incentive is to watch the meters like a hawk, if God forbid a vehicle owner is late by a half a second, he’d have to pay a fine of fifteen dollars.

At the end of the parking lot the city has donated a small area for vendors to bring their local produce to sell.

One day I went to see what kind of produce the vendors were selling. One of the vendors’ had a variety of vegetables, what caught my eyes were green chillies. I picked one up, which was about the size of my index finger, now I wasn’t thinking of buying one but a nice bunch. I asked the vendor, ‘How much is this?’

She looked at me and said, ‘one dollar each,’ and added, ‘I grow it in my green house.’

I looked at her, said, ‘thank you,’  and came home.

I think the local vendors charge too much money for their produce. This is why they are unable to sell it!

Daily Prompt : Commit

In response to one-word prompt : Commit

When I entered the teaching profession I made a commitment to do my job to the best of my ability. I  tried my best and I  am happy each student I taught got my full attention.

At age nine the child  did not comprehend what I was trying to tell him. Some ended up quitting school. In my profession, not only the teacher, but the parents and the child also need to work hard. The teacher is unable to help if the rest of the people related to  the child do not give enough attention for the benefit of the child.
