The Greeeaaat Whiiiiite Chew Toy

I’s once, a great
White beast o’ prey
But now, me fate
Be torpid play

Fare well, Ahab;
See, I’ve no kneed
Fer vengeful rehab
‘Midst carpet seas.

…I am asking, for some kind of creative writing, using the image above, and a random number hmm, lets see, 28.

So further to that, I want a piece of creative writing that is twenty-eight words onlynot more or less, but exactly 28, not including the title. And don’t get clever with the title, by making it a long one, the title must be of 5 words or fewer. It can be poetry or prose.

      Nah, it’s a picture from Carolyn. I think she said he’s a greyhound.

        Oh okay. Yeah, it looks like it could be a greyhound, too.

    It is odd where the imagination goes when prompted. Every eye and mind sees something different.

        No, not so odd- we are not programmed robots, and there is not one code or vision.
