the 11 of 12 given words:
sin deny sidekick watch water sprinkle thinner
binge (an unrestrained and often excessive indulgence eg a buying binge)
slick (characterized by subtlety, wily a slick swindler)
staccato whistles

How sinful to deny a 'sidekick'
Of her rightful place by your side
Her buying binge is turning drastic
Watch how she use her new-found pride

Flaunting your wealth freely like water
Not in sprinkles but fast-moving splashes
Impacting towards your thinning coffers
Slick talker with twitch of her eyelashes

Followed by staccato bursts of babbles
With a barrage of unending questions
Ending with a triumphant measure of whistles
To confront the subdued load of a victim

  2. You brought a new element to the prompt. Materialism is ever topical these days.

  3. "Flaunting your wealth freely like water
    Not in sprinkles but fast-moving splashes"

  4. With what little money I have, she'd probably kick me to the curb quickly.

  5. I think the problem is half the narrators as he failed to see her faults earlier, blind perhaps to both their weaknesses.

  6. An interesting 'take' on materialism - and very pertinent, I think, to the values of the day. Enjoyed the touches of humor and the great job you did with the rhyme.

  7. "Buying is good mental therapy" so I've been told. Except binges in buying are what she needs therapy for. Your lines (not that I'm wealthy), "Not in sprinkles but fast-moving splashes
    Impacting towards your thinning coffers

    remind me of the burden of having an empty house that hasn't found a buyer yet. Very costly for us retired people.
    This was a fun read, Hank. You did well with using your eleven words. They all sound as if you had no requirement to use the, they are like a natural fit

  9. I can't decide if he enjoys paying for arm candy or she is just a gold digger. Either way this is a toxic relationship

  14. She indeed is her own victim in that buying binge. Seems she needs therapy or just some friends or a good book to help her focus on other things
