My Father

7th February 2022

My father, born under adventuresome Aries
was hard to please
Unlike Capricorn’s sure-footed mountain-goat.
When he had a great fortune he would gloat
A fortune, note, that we didn’t see
Next day he’d swear he would rather shovel shit in the Isle of Capri.
Mother had two words for him, and I agree
Ambitious, capricious

55 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Capricious

    Well old, Crispina. Ambitious, indeed. 🙂
