Abecedarium of Demise: The Letter N



Nicholas Nabbed some New Neckties at Northrup's Department Store.
He wore some 'Neath his Naugahyde coat and Nudged his way towards the door.



But one Necktie became entangled on an errantly jutting Nail
in a Neckbreaking spin through the revolving door, his shoplifting plan did fail.

I have made my illustrated poem "On a Windy Night Ludmila the Clown Went Missing" available on blurb. It features 30 original artworks.

Better than a security alarm! That's what Nicholas gets for trying to be nattily dressed without paying! Kathy

Mumsy said...

That was "naughty" ending for Nicholas..

Jenny said...

Poor Nicholas. At least he doesn't live his life in a niddering fashion.

I hope his necrologue allows his family to retain some semblance of pride.

And to think...here I was worried that your post might be about necrophagous or necromania.

And it made my morning to read your post in the top 10!

Thank you Julie for sharing your talent with us each week.

I think you are very nice.

(Oh, leave me alone...I only have so many long "N" words in my vocab)

A+

PS. If anyone else reads my comment here order Julie's book. You will be amazed. The illustrations are incredible...ever time I look at a page I find something else to go "wow" over!
