One-Liner Wednesday — Fortunately

Fortunately we can’t do as much damage as some of us would like to.

(Or at least I hope not.)

Linda G. Hill's Just Jot It January Prompt

Ogres Are Awful

In the green of our valley where ogres do dwell
We think thoughts of heaven. They act like it’s hell.
If they knew all the damage they did, would they stop?
Or try one more time to go over the top?
We’ve been very rational, patient and kind,
But the ogres are beastly and out of their minds.
Our blossoms they pick and then drop to the ground.
We suffer indecency and without sound.
I could go on but my heart would seek blame.
When they cry I’m reminded we all cry the same.
