“This poem goes a little something like this
It’s already been said before but please
Humour me for just a moment longer
It’s not a thing you’ll want to miss
It’s not all too clever but yet, you stuck around long
enough to read this the whole way through.”
Orange, go rage!

How did I find myself here?
For months now I’ve been receiving these daily prompts, and I’ve always thought of myself as a steadfast, go-against the crowd kind-of guy. It must be the hang-over from Friday the 13th, that must be it because now I’ve finally surrendered to one of the prompts, I’ve finally written in response to Succumb.
I don’t know how long you’re supposed to make your responses but, it feels as if additional paragraphs might just be enough.
Usually during this time (Halloween month), I try my best to not be a part of it but making sure not to ruin it for my younger relatives. So last night, whilst they are on their school holidays, they came over to stay with us and as kids love their snacks and other “junk” foods we drove to the nearest shopping to get those items.
Whilst there, they headed directly for the Halloween aisle where you could find all sorts of costumes and make-up. It was here I could not resist but join them in trying out different costumes and masks, however the make-up was a step too far. One foot in-front of the other for now I think.
And here it is, take it all for I have now capitulated and have no more willpower left. Perhaps I must brace myself for the next prompt that’s to come and, get wrapt in it.
Thank you for calling, bye.
