Talent

I’ve always dreamt of finding something I could really do.

Some special thing, in which I could excel.

Like soaring on a hang-glider, up into the blue,

But heights don’t seem to suit me very well.

I wondered if my voice could take me to the top.

If choirs and bands would compete for my singing.

But, at every audition they all just screamed out ” STOP !”,

And the meanest ones said that my voice was “minging”.

My jittery attempts at baking for success

Should really, I admit, be best forgotten.

My Victoria sponge cake was such an awful mess

And , of course, my pies all had a soggy bottom.

I’ve bumped along, throughout my life, trying this and that,

Searching for a talent most unique.

Painting, writing, gardening; crocheting a mat !

Something different every flipping week.

But the clouts and disappointments I have had along the way,

Were beginning to destroy my special dream,

Until I saw a certain thing, just the other day.

And now I’m like the cat that got the cream !

People flock from far and wide. I’m even on TV

And honestly; though nothing else was working,

Now I’ve found my special thing, I’m happy as can be.

‘Cos I’m really ace …… I’m just the best at TWERKING !!

This is my entry for the Countdown Word Game. The game was invented by Matt Mascarenhas and you can find details on his blog at http://miblodelcarpio.blog.co.uk

However, I suppose my entry should really be invalid as I have just realised that I have missed out a word !

Nevertheless, as I have so little time at the moment, I present this and hope I will be forgiven.

The words to be included this week are;

CHOIRS, MEANEST, CLOUTS, DREAMT, SOARING, JITTERY, BUMPED, TRAMP, UNDID and the word I omitted LOANERS.
