Many hands make light work

Moving in. 10 flights of stairs.
He offered to lend a hand.
I wish I got his name or digits.
This thing's starting to smell.

Edit: Fixed confusion in line 2.

Likee.
Climbing the stairs does make you want to cut out the pronouns. But second line misled my brain a tad. Sounded like you were making the offer.

Aw, man, he gave you the hand without the digits? Talk about rude! :P

I know it was an unnecessary pun...but I couldn't help myself!!! Plus, I thought Varda would get a chuckle. :P

A bonfire on Samhain night,
the Morrigan will dance and fight.
So watch your wee ones or they might
Become the sacrifice.

Wow, been a while since I saw an AAAB rhyme scheme in a rocking... wait a minute!, this is the second really good poem posted here in 24 hours. Sunner's drabble and Cymraeg's twabble... what?

-You want to combine 'poem' and 'twabble' and 'drabble'? But, the permutations!
-Yes, definitely... autographed photos of the Chalice of Glory...
-Ask them what? ...If they're available for a B-Sides interview ?

Mountains of dishes. Apply soap. Scrub.

It's not working!

A bubble pops. In the watery mire, the primordial scum stirs.

Kinda like a little Dr. Zeus Greek mythology creation story: The gods had a helluva party. Next day, down in the grease trap...

Is a hand without digits an analog hand?

The cereal box said there was a surprise inside. I prodded the many-legged thing and couldn't claim false advertising.

Gary brushes religiously
But has bad cavities
He sleeps with his mouth open all night
To tooth fairy's hungry delight.

He sees it in the distance. Red and silver flash, dust surges upward. He lifts his foot. Too late, now he’s only road kill.

Not sure which of these is scaring the kids more this season...

I wear his legs for my pants.
They're really rather itchy.
Now the bastard's dogged by ants
it makes him mean and twitchy.



Beware hollow weenies, so scary
when wearing costumes teenie or hairy.
Unless you think it's neat
to get a creamy treat.

"So that was why they called those flowers Mums," he mused. "Siri, where should I bury Dad?" "Under the Poppies" it said.

About to incinerate his most recent experiment like all the others, he heard a mewing. They had worked. What had he done?
