Writers Island 2010 #1

Written for and posted to Writers Island.
The prompt this week is 'Message in a bottle'

Here's mine:


BALDERDASH
Mike echo sierra sierra alpha golf echo
Dash dash, dot, dot dot dot, dot dot dot,
Dot dash, dash dash dot, dot.
They got my message but they don’t understand
I sent it in a bottle sealed with a cork
They opened it and ate the pickled note
And this is all I got back in the post
Mike echo sierra sierra alpha golf echo
Dash dash, dot, dot dot dot, dot dot dot,
Dot dash, dash dash dot, dot, what?
02052+10
This is the note that they ate!

  1. How good to find you! Love your take on the prompt and "they" should be flogged for eating that message! Great links, too. Thanks.

  2. If they were so hungry as to eat the note, they maybe should have sent their own message for help.
    Enjoyed that.

  3. If that's Balderdash, are the more modern alternatives any better? MM2, MMS, SMS? At least they should be in plain English... or perhaps it could be a ข้อความ... ?

  4. Hi Linda, nice to meet you!

    Thanks Tony, I think eating the note probably is a cry for help!

    Hi Stan, in my day they just wrote SOS in the sand, but they tell me they write Help? backwards these days. ?PLEH
