CAUSTIC HUNCH SACRIFICE

April is the month of NaPoWriMo 2010.
Writing from Thailand, my contributions
will come under the INTPO WRIMO banner.


For Three Word Wednesday
CAUSTIC, HUNCH, SACRIFICE



THE RIGHT ORDER

Must learn to prioritise
Get things in the right order
Write up a ‘Things To Do’ list
SACRIFICE preferences

Update, amend and edit
Don’t just rely on a HUNCH
Can’t count on second guesses
Far too much scope for mistakes

Back up the words with actions
Keep within the agenda
Target completion deadlines
Efficiency is the aim

Zealous in all endeavours
Perfection can be achieved
Applying CAUSTIC contempt
Just takes a little practice

Vacuous, inane standards?
Lack of organisation?
Heading for a disaster?
X’s in all these boxes

Yesterday’s hesitation
Impossible as it seems
Replaced by workable plan
Quality with confidence

Order Alphabetical?
Not necessarily so

  8. Thanks Thomma; You took it with the pinch of salt it was crying out for;
    Perhaps it's a kind of CAUSTIC ACROSTIC...

  16. If we were to put it into alphabetical order it would truly turn into chaos...at least I think so. Have you tried it to see what it would look and sound like? I love to play with words.

  20. "Who put the alphabet in alphabetical order?" - They Might Be Giants

    A question on a children's album, but, not a childish question. Your order is as valid as any, but it just doesn't fit into that little rhyme we all learned in kindergarten. If it were Stan Ski that put the alphabet in alphabetical order, we'd need a new tune. :-)

    Organization within the disorganization, very clever and a lot of fun!

  21. Thanks Jay; ABC doesn't work for everyone. The Thai alphabet, for instance, starts with 'ก', which is 'K' in english.
