Got Stuck

in the muck. In my

(Just bad luck.)

Tried to flee. Silly me.
Feet got tucked
in that muck
with my truck.

(Aw, shucks.)

Pulled ’em loose. Lost
my shoes.

(Bad news.)

Still here. Oh, dear.
Mud in ear. End is near.



Today calls for something silly. I’m hosting the Quadrille over at dVerse. Come play!

  1. This reminds me of Frankie’s childhood book “My Truck is Stuck!” I still remember the refrain: “What rotten luck! My truck is stuck!” A yukky situation, to be sure! Great write!

  2. Ha.. Love it… when the mud is rising the end is near… may rescue come to get the truck out from the muck

    It must really suck to get stuck with your truck in the muck–talk about bad luck; makes you just want to kick a duck; smile.

  4. Ha, ha, ha! I love the use of brackets here, and the internal dialogue. It works really well.

    mud is ear is total yuck! I am sorry your lost your shoes, more yuck between the toes…shudders!

    Oh my goodness, this resonates. Long story….that involves mud, a truck and a canyon in New Mexico. I liked the format of your poem, alternating with pauses of reaction to the situation.

  14. Oh no! Hope you didn’t fall in it 😳

    This is too horribly familiar to be funny.

    And then when the yuck dries on your soles, you have to dig it out with a knife, lol. Thanks for a yucky, mucky look at the mud

  19. Haha! I can see you going under into all that yuck! What luck!
