The Rest Of The Story

By Kelli Sheckler-AmsdenPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

Amy always admired amateur axe throwing

Archery, aerobics and on occasion, air hockey

Admittedly she thought she'd be absolutely amazing

Turns out, her arms were just too close to her body


Bobby begrudgingly gave up on baseball

Because he boldly believed he was the best one to bunt

But, being a baby Baryonyx, he began bawling

Bros badly berated him about being the runt


Cindy Ceratop contemplated cosmetology

Her crown creatively curtailed her face

Critical customers complained she'd created calamity

As her cute little arms couldn't keep up with the pace


After all of the failures they simply quit trying

Their little arms made it hard to go on

They lived their lives keeping their cards close to their chests

And without as much as a peep, POOF, they were gone

For Funhumorfact or fiction

    Quite inventive with the use of the alliteration at times. Great work.
