the 12 given words:
shield, unsteady, touch, 
tangles (something that hampers, obstructs)
rejoice, scorn shame grime sane wait tarnished ,
mesh (any arrangement of interlocking metal links)

3WW words:
snuff specific tempting

Ready to provide a shield of protection
Though unsteady but he had the touch
Avoiding tangles nor rejoicing in the deal
No scorn intended nor shame be accepted
He had the ability
He had to take on the responsibility!

Had painstakingly gone through the grime
A sane proposition had to be implemented fast
Fatal to wait for others to move
The specifics must be addressed in the now
Tempting not to act on someone else's folly
But it should not be allowed to fester
For they had tarnished the family name

The mesh had to be unravelled amicably
To snuff off impending disaster pervading
which was likely to overwhelm in its enormity
He had to act

Being the eldest he must be seen to act!

  1. Oh yes, the oldest. The one that must always remember to give the best example. The burden of responsibility. Was always glad I wasn't that one.


  2. always the pressure on the oldest glad I'm not the oldest.

  3. I know all about the elder bully brother thankyou!

  4. The eldest always carries the greatest load of expectations.

  5. The eldest sure always seems to lead the way with anything at play

  6. Having to act is usually what propels us to act---usually, but not always. Fortunately, the grand beast in your poem did what he needed to do!
