I’ll Be Damned…

My father was a

master in the art of

using curse words…

Damn or Damned

or Dammit were

sprinkled liberally

through his sentences

along with an occasional


I inherited his ability

to use curse words

with finesse…

Although my words

run a bit more

colorful than an

occasional DAMN


Of course…

A proper Southern

Lady did(does) not

use such language

I was always told


I am Southern

Never to be mistaken

for Proper


A Lady non the less…

The older I get

the more colorful my

language becomes

Not that I don’t

have a vast vocabulary


As my Mama always

told me,

“Sometimes you just

have to cuss!”

Well, I’ll be


Mama was always right!

Today’s prompt asked us to look back to previous writing for an adjective to use for the prompt … I seem to use the word ‘damn’ much too often. Perhaps I need to do the reverse of what Mark Twain suggested!
