from falling debris. This overhead scaffolding was
built around the tree to keep it alive. (here)

the 12 given words:
protested, reign houses money chair outside 
bed falling street month city, country

he protested but reigned in his anger
been through this many times before
houses in a tenement area subject to onslaught
an experience that money could not buy

occasionally debris floated down from the upper floors
one time it was a chair together with a whole table

he was looking outside from his bed one morning
about to thank Providence hoping for peacefulness
for the rest of the day

they suddenly came falling onto the street
below amidst commotions just above
there wasn't a month when nothing happened

civic consciousness in a such a city and a country
should be a thing of the past but contrary to beliefs
there was no let up
it appeared to be fun for some wayward weirdos

Note: This is totally fictional not related to any
city or country on the face of this earth - Amen!

  1. Very intersting to read Hank and how you involve the given words are great.


  2. That is just crazy people would toss stuff like that out a window.

  3. Cleverly written and cleverly titled!

  4. Nice line: "an experience that money could not buy"

  5. People sure toss crap every which way and expect someone else to do the work.

  6. A good combination of all the guven words to describe this dystopia. I wouldn’t want to live here!

  7. Too bad that this is happening Hank ~

  8. A sad world when we cannot trust our fellow men not trying to kill us for fun...

  9. Thank for your very good article! i always enjoy & read the post you are sharing!
