188 sops made joyful for texting in garden


Father applauded –
they laughed out 188 suppers
to kingdoms in night for
or using suffering
while entering over
a recent 18-bread flesh.

Father also knew 147 hours,
74 registration cups
and 59 Lords
to white nights
who didn’t have atonement.

That guard endureth
to fewer than 2,000,
feet in 2013.



Following Margo over to Oulipost for today’s challenge, the “Chimera.”

    Grin. Using the numbers is clever. By the end, father sounds like a Mason or an Elk.

  2. My little one loves “Let it Go.” And I am very impressed by this hybrid. Though I was unsure what the numbers signified, but I imagine that’s part of the point of it!

    The numbers were actually part of the original article. I couldn’t remember if a number is officially an adjective or not. I could have replaced them with adjectives, but it started to get sort of interesting when I didn’t. 😉
