It's that time again. Use all 5 words in any tense. Write this in one sitting or in under an hour (this is literally to help you quash your inner overly critical editor. If you need more time whatever). Post it on mylot and post a link here so we can all enjoy. words:me, poll, arm, can, stain MINE: Let's take a poll, about the state of the world, As the stain that is 2020 around us hurls, Can we survive the pandemic and bees, will the methgators bring us to our knees? Arms for healing and arms for harm, will the crops survive on the farms? As for me, I say don't forget the weather, as sandstorms and locusts hurl us towards never!

You will see me at the polls. Not an automatic machine. No "one arm pull" to cast a vote. I can be there and not abstain. (I know I cheated about the word stain"

I like your effort. Can I use these words in a Haiku? I don't stain wood things arm strength and oil can suffice poll says: they love me

Shorty bull: just you and me you sporting horns, not polled and I with my girlish arms your stomping rush a stain on the Earth Thank God and Jesus for Laddy pup as he barked I can! and did as he bit that fiercesome nose nipped, nipping until Dad heard and rushed over. me, poll, arm, can, stain

"Methgators!!" If that wasn't so terribly spot on, I'd laugh.
