I Packed My Bag

Image by Alexas Fotos

I packed my carrier bag
So called for being easily portable
And in it I put
My Neolithic flint core
My Bronze Age Beaker pot
My third century Roman toiletries
My sixth century stockings
My eleventh century book
My fourteenth century Apostle spoons
My seventeenth century kitten-heeled shoes
My eighteenth century loose gown
And called the bag my portmanteau

59 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Portmanteau
btw: Manteau is a loose gown fashionable in eighteenth century
