We've all likely heard of the six-word story made famous by Ernest Hemmingway:

For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.

So, in keeping with the minimalist theme of Fats Velvet's new thread, how about the six word poem? You can break up the words into however many lines you like, but the poem must contain ONLY six words.

Here's mine (with all due credit to e.e. cummings):

a
leaf
falls.

lonely,
terrible

evening.

Off topic, but the accused serial killer for the movie "Scream" was named Cotton. There was also a famous serial killer in England named Mary Ann Cotton who killed upwards of 21 people. There are famous children's rhymes about her.


Mary Ann Cotton,
Dead and forgotten
She lies in her bed,
With her eyes wide open
Sing, sing, oh, what can I sing,
Mary Ann Cotton is tied up with string
Where, where? Up in the air
Sellin' black puddens a penny a pair.

Need a chronometer
and a sphygmomanometer.




[True story: I once asked a fellow RN to pass me
the sphygmomanometer. She was clueless.
"The blood pressure cuff," I said.
"Well why didn't you just say so?"
I get that most nurses don't use its technical name.
But they should know. It is taught. And some do use it.]
