Evening all

Hi I go to a writer's group on Thursday afternoons and I have to write around 500/600 words for tomorrow. As usual I am getting stuck and anxious because I hate targets! Would appreciate some advice please.

I am going to write a poem - it has to include (don't laugh) Blue drawers (the ones you wear), red socks and stamps. The theme is going to be a wedding and the only thing new to wear is red socks. The bride resents that and kicks off. Going to be a humorous poem. Need some snappy lines - give you an example of what I have written.

I know whats new just had a pressie

And he proceeded to open the box

I stamped my foot and screamed

I'm not getting married in red socks!

Get your thinking caps on please.

    What fool has sent me red socks.

    Where is he. What room I really need to know,

    They belong to him he should wear them

    Take them 'Why has someone sent me red socks'

  • Dear Bev,

    I have tried and come up with this.

    A wedding with red and blue

    Is not something for me and you

    Lets kick up a fuss and take the bus

    A rethink of the dresscode is due.
