Three Word Wednesday CLXXXVIII

Written for and posted to 3WW
The words this week are:
Escape, Hum, and Vibrant.

Here's Mine:
First an American sentence.

Dave told Dawn to hum the hymns and bang the tins, for a vibrant escape.

Then an anagramatic NaiSaiKu ..

Bah! Rap Music Event.
Could be an anagram of
ESCAPE, VIBRANT HUM.
Which is an anagram of
Pub Act! his men rave.
05052+10/1

Or perhaps:

Chav muse: I trap Ben!
could be an anagram of
HUM VIBRANT ESCAPE
which is an anagram of
Vampire eats bunch!
05052+10/2

Followed by:
GAME ONE
Poetic Flash Fiction in 51 Syllables.
Write a piece of flash fiction in just three American Sentences.  

Allen Ginsberg's American Sentence has seventeen syllables.  
Your task is to use as few words as possible to fill the sandwich.

HUM THE HYMNS
Incarcerated but free to write The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Dave told Dawn to hum the hymns and bang the tins, for a vibrant escape. Oscar Wilde would have been proud, as they rose above their situation.
05052+10/3   

And finally, my Flash 55:

SOMETHING SPECTACULAR
Create a distraction, light a fire, do something spectacular! How can I disentangle myself from these rusting chains? Incarcerated but free to quote The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Dave tells Dawn to hum the hymns and bang the tins, for a vibrant escape. Oscar Wilde would have been proud, as they rise above their situation.
05052+10/4 


 WITHOUT BOUNDARIES

  2. Certainly a lot to peruse, as always Andy. You've a way with turning a phrase. Clever, very clever.

    (And yes, you are on the 3WW blog roll.)

  7. Thanks Sweetest in the Gale, I enjoyed reading your post too!

    Hi Dee, I couldn't resist the Vampire thing! And of course an anagram of 'Vampire eats bunch' might be 'Chain revamps tube'.

  10. If Hughes was sacked after Spurs beat City at WHL(then went on to beat everyone else as well) and Mancini couldn't get City to play well enough to prevent them from catching up, overtaking, and ultimately beating City at Eastlands - will he still have a job today...? If he does, then neither the players, nor the manager, nor even the owners know what they're talking about...
    ...There's no one quite like John Bond...
    What do City have to do to make OW proud?
    Great post!

  11. Hi Stan, you say they think it's all over? It is now! OW would make them bare their backsides in Lewis's Window! John Bond's a mate of Arties across the frog 'n' toad, what City need is James Bond to shoot 'em. The players, the Mananager and the owners should be getting their cards from Basildon Bond in the morning! The Spurs fans are hoping for third place now. The blues were tearing up their season tickets en masse! I don't know what happened at Piccadilly, but the Kippax were chanting 'You'll never reach the station!' more later...

  12. Thanks Norma, I've got nothing better to do! (only joking).

  14. Could hardly relate...but yeah, a mind-boggling-blogging thought Andy!

  15. CARP BAIT EVEN MUSH, an anagram of ESCAPE HUM VIBRANT.

    The "Vampire eats bunch" is ingenious!

    I know a Dave and Dawn married couple, so your American sentence instantly conjured an image for me with my acquaintances. Thanks for your jamboree of 3ww fun and thanks again for the comments on mine!

  16. Nicely Jay! Carp bait and mush are three of the words I didn't get this week.

    Please give my regards to Dave and Dawn.
