Gypsy Queen – Trifextra: Week Seventy-Eight

Written for Trifecta. A limerick for the weekend. It begins after the image.

Gypsy Queen

Vance drank potions of magic sticky and green
A cure for blues, brewed by the gypsy queen
Then she looked in his eyes
And much to her surprise
He was her cure too, ‘neath passion’s sheen

This weekend’s Trifextra prompt is to write exactly 33 words that include a color. Original prompt may be found here:

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
