Wednesday #Poetry: Drag, Mumble, Penetrate

Welcome to my regular Wednesday poetry corner, brought to you by Three Word Wednesday.

Today's words are: Drag, Mumble, Penetrate.

"Don't mumble! Shut up and sit straight!"
Words to a child's heart penetrate.
Grown from such a drag,
With a heart of cold slag
Ne'er once fired by love... only hate.

  2. Yes... words bite. Mine is similar.

  3. it is sad when those are the only words and child hears.

  4. This is a sad truth in many cases.

  5. Absolutely loved this. Usually this form is reserved for humorous poems so loving the juxtaposition between the form and the content of the poem. Very sad comment

  6. You write fabulous poetry/stories,
