Daily Prompts- On tenterhooks

It is so exciting, today is the day

And yet the anticipation is muddied with

Fear that that aeolist may win the election again

People are on tenterhooks, awaiting the results keenly

And if this election result is as most people want it to be

I will vouch that there will be something to celebrate this time

There are lots of opinions on social media, people making noise

About their favorite candidates and party preferences

Let’s hope that peace and harmony prevail

As the results are finally announced

In response to the following prompts;




Social, Year, Noise





Word of the day challenge;

I’ve always been more interested in Canadian politics.

    Exceptional prompt weaving, as usual, Sadje!💕

  2. great use of the prompts and perfect way to mark this day … according to the figures I’m seeing Biden is well ahead but not safe yet. All said above, the world waits with bated breath … this monster needs to be gone but doubt he will leave quietly!
