Any Way You Slice It

It’s a curious adventure,
sliding through one’s life,
defining expectations,
intersecting strife.
Casual departures,
from the normal path,
searching out reactions,
timidity or wrath.
Making value judgements,
is it miss or hit,
but any way you slice it,
I’ll take the bigger bit!

      I have challenged sunovawot! The game is on! Since the titles are written AFTER the poems, I challenged him to write the poem based on the title I supply. This poem shows that top down or bottom up, this man is truly a poet! It comes straight from his soul! 😀

      • But of course he is a poet, so are you…

    • Maybe just a handfull of popcorms to fill the corners that the Xmas pudding didn’t reach, thanks 😀

      damommza gave me the title to see what I would do with it, and as soon as I read it I knew how it would end, it was just a matter of getting there. The first line came out of the blue, but it then gave me a shape to work with 😀

      • *Passes the popcorm bowl* You had pud? with vanilla sauce? and you are not going to be full for the next elebenty months? somebody has been using margarine in the pudding recepie! 😯 J/K
        But all kidding aside, I love Xmas pud but have not made any just for me for some years. I am not kidding that if I eat a plate I will not eat much for about 48 hours after… 🙂

        I think it’s a keen idea to start with just the title!

        😆

        • No vanilla sauce, and life is too short to make an Xmas pud, but not, thank goodness, to eat one 😀 But that’s it for the day (maybe just a little plate of savouries, later 🙂 )

          • lol… you know that the original name for Christmas pud is “clootie puddin”? 🙂

              Every time I hear of “clotted cream” my skin grows cold and I break out in sweat. 😆 😆

                  Yes, but “cottage” is such a lovely word and it fills the head with images of thatched roofs and quaint kitchens and “clot” just goes with the word “blood” *shudders* LOL

            • I didn’t, but do now. But did you know the word “pudding” is thought to come from “boudin” (which I tried once, but was not particularly enamoured with) 😀

              Reply
              • *chuckle* yes, I know it comes from “boudin” which was originally pudding-like; I have eaten blood pudding in Poland (on a bet and won 70 euros, too, nah)… 🙂

                • The English version is called “black pudding” and is generally served fried, although that doesn’t make it taste any better, I assure you 😆
