Throw The Book At…?

Sargent, John Singer, A Dinner Table at Night, 1884


(a shadorma)

looking Missus dines
with Lover;
and caught red-
handed while enjoying his
Mistress? Her Mister.

P. Wanken

Another mash-up of prompts:

  1. margo roby’s Tuesday Tryouts prompt was a bit “free” this week – one of the options was to pick a prompt from her Friday Freeforall (poetry prompt round-up). Which I did…and chose Magpie Tales.
  2. Magpie Tales offered an image prompt (shown above).
  3. As I was writing, “100 Days of Summer” expressions/themes came to mind. There are two each week, and for Day 42 I used both:
    • “throw the book at…”
    • “caught red-handed”
  4. Finally, I’m posting to dVerse Poets Pub for Open Link Night #57.

I’ll leave it to you to decide who is throwing the book at whom!


  1. The Mister, Missus, Mistress mash-up! You are so clever 🙂
    I’m sure there will be plenty of book throwing in this scenario–well played!
