This is another poem from a prompt, using the words,rubik's cube, demonized and carrot. It turned out pretty good considering those words!!
Caitlin with the carrot-colored hairWent off to visit a witch so fair.Seeking help, her problem, profound.The witch’s familiar was a Basset Hound!
“What? No black cat?” Caitlin asked.“Sadly, my cat was possessed! Aghast,A corrupt thing, most surely demonized.So I changed her into this hound so fine.”
“What, my sweet,might I do for you?”While cooing to her grey morning dove.“I have looked far and wide,” the lass replied.“But cannot find my one true love.”
The witch rose to stir her cauldron stewDug deep into a magical, tapestry bagAnd handed Caitlin a rubic’s cubeWhich made the lovelorn girl quite mad!
“I beseech your help and receive a toy?”“Ah, my beauty, it will bring you joy.” For when solved, the rubic’s squares,Will bring the one for whom you care.”
The witchcraft worked on the very first try,As Caitlin sat alone in the park.A handsome, dark-eyed man ambled byAnd made a quizzical remark.
“Excuse me Miss,” he said and satBeside her on the wooden bench.“You seem to need a hand with that.”His eyes took in the lovely wench.
Moments passed with no retreat,As he twisted, turned, then it was done.The rubic’s cube was now completeCaitlin sighed, her heartstrings sung.
Far in the distance howled a soundFrom a most special Basset Hound.The witch pulled up her blood-red cowlAnd smiled; true love once more, found.
