A new excuse

Applying the lipstick anew on her luscious lips

She ventured forth to settle the arrears due

She needed a suitable excuse to justify the spending

“She was not the one to incur debt or owe money

It was her husband, you see who had gambled away

All the savings they had accumulated over the years”

With a tear or two, she managed to convince the people

Who had a short time earlier demanding dues paid in full

Hiding a triumphant smile she came home to share the good news

Her husband was relieved but admonished her to never again

Run into debt or be overdrawn and in arrears again

In response to the following;

Your daily word prompt;






Word of the day challenge;
