Magpie # 64

Who's got time
to stand here
Like this?

For five dollar;
easy money,
Waste of time.

Got a garden to tend,
dough to knead,
Veggies to chop.

Washin' to scrub,
hang out to dry.
Ironin' piled high.

Waste my time.
ain't you got no work?
Have a glass of cool well water?

The thoughts of a somewhat 'sensible' woman who has no time for what she deems to be frivolity. A wonderful write on 'impatience'.

Yes, I think these thoughts were rolling around in her head. Excellent, Rel.

She does look rather bored with it all! Excellent observation.

One of my favorite takes on this prompt - perfect, wish I'd written this (said in a non-jealous, amiable way).

A surprising take on the prompt and yet when I look more closely at her face, I see your words. Perfect!
