RIP Magpie



















Here lies the body of Jessica Kelly,
Who stuffed so much cake and tart in her belly,
That she could not eat
Her veggies and meat
And choked on a huge slice of strawberry jelly!

More offerings can be seen at Magpie Tales.

  15. I like your take on the "slice" I think one of the best things about Tess's prompts are that they open us up in that creative way and that we then get to see through other creators eyes...

    Thank you for coming to my site and I hope to see you there again some day.
