This silly little poem is linked to week 172 of Saturday Centus. The prompt is in bold. To read other 107 word offerings using this prompt, just click here. PS. It's fiction!
I’m campaigning as the Mayor of Stress Town
Take my pamphlet please!
I have lots of experience
As you can plainly see!
Three crazy ex's and Mom of three.
Single parent, poverty.
Being positive in spite of ick
Menopause and chronic sick
Eight step-kids and lots of Grands
I know you voters understand!
What’s that you say?
There’s stinky pay?
Instead I get a parking space?
I’m out of this race!
I’m already Mayor of Stress Town.
Sadly this is true.
But at least if you don’t elect me!
I don't have to take care of you!
