There goes running Allegra out the front door
Her mother yells ~
“Close that door! Were you raised in a barn?”
Laughing Allegra yells back ~
Not in a barn
Not on a farm
Who gives a darn!
Not even for a song
Not even for a yarn
I say ~
Writing prompt by dVerse Poetics~
My morning’s writing for dVerse Poetics prompt using idioms in a fun and different way!
Catachresis originally come from greek (κατάχρησις) and means abuse. When used as a literary device, we misuse the language for literary effect. For instance when E.E. Cummings writes:
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses ~ nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands
Cummings uses the illogical connection between voice and eyes and between the hands and rain.
Fun – if you leave the door open, the fowl will soon be gone!
Fun write Joan – you did good!
Thank you my dear.
Indeed you went to the core of Catachresis ..and found those little disturbing details..wonderful.. BTW I corrected your link I think… 🙂

Allegra seems to be a bit of a smart Alec (wonder where that saying came from?). I strained a bit to find the prompt parameters here, but loved the levity.
Thank you for stopping by Glenn! Yes I would agree ~ fun to write.
