whoops! Writers Island has sent you to the wrong place! For Outrageous click herehereherehereherehere
Our prompt on Writers Island this week is Triumph. My mind initially turned to a popular brand of ladies brassiere, but I dismissed the thought and changed the word to Triumphant which is a tad easier to work with! Here's the result which doubles up as today's NaPoWriMo contribution.
Slim tapering shafts of glinting steel
Not one, nor two but three missiles
ready to take flight
in pursuit of their ultimate goal
Just one man with the task
of sending them on their way
Only seconds away
from victory over their foe.
Beads of sweat glisten on his brow
All eyes focus on his hand
as he raises it aloft
Preparing himself for what he must do
The first, the second and third
are launched and seek their target
Flying toward their final destination
piercing the air with deadly accuracy
The target reached, the battle won
A triumphant crowd salutes their hero
as the battle ends
with a perfect one hundred and eighty
There's nothing like a game of darts!
