Trouble, Oh We Got Trouble


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “300 Goats” by Naomi Shihab Nye: icy, huddle, debating, frigid, swooping, cuts, goats, town, shrugs, warm, zodiac, pressing


Trouble, oh we got trouble
Walking on an icy road
Goats drink in frigid water
She huddled up close to him
He’s not even her husband
Wife just shrugged and
Went home to keep herself warm
Husband be prepared for the debate
If I was her I’d cut his throat
A pressing doom and gloom
For his Zodiac sign
Trouble, oh we got trouble


For: Music Prompt #27: “Trouble in River City” from the musical “The Music Man” and Whirligig 44 by Magical Mystical Teacher
