Writing Prompt November 13 – Abecedarian – It All Makes Sense….


One said to the other, “this is nonsense.”

The other said to the other, “no it’s an alphabet. Therefore, it must make sense. Alphabets are like that. Sensible. A way forward.”

“Can’t make head nor tails of it,” said one, looking puzzled.

“Just concentrate and see what pops into your mind.”

“That’s just it my mind is empty, like an infinite void.”

“I’m sure,” said the other, “there are things you can bring into play at a time like this.”

“Well let’s see…a) always there is a solution. b) be patient. c) careful what you think about as it could be a red herring.”

“Disastrous thinking I would say.”

“Egotistical to say the least.”

“Facetious is what you are doing.”

“Good you have caught on, should I stop?”

“Highlight of my day.”


“Just when I thought it was safe too.”

“Keeps you on the straight and narrow doesn’t it?”

“Laughing all the way to the intellectual bank.”

“Mind how you go though you could do yourself a damage.”

“Never I’m always careful, on the ball and quite often pithy”.

“Open minded?”


“Queer egg aren’t you.”

“Rarely do I get questioned about such things.”

“Staggered by your attitude, I think I’ll retreat and think a while.”

“Terribly sorry to put you to so much bother I really am.”

“Understanding is my middle name.”

“Varies from day to day doesn’t it.”

“Weak mind set and oh so unreliable.”

“Xylophonic blast from the past.”

“You think so?”

“Zounds yes.”

“So how did we go,” asked one to the other?

“You were right the first time.”

“How so?”

“It was all a nonsense.”

“It’s what happens when words and letters pop into my mind.”

“Cup of tea?”

“Oh would be nice.”

“One lump or two?

    Funny piece Michael. Indeed who makes sense of alphabets to begin with? It ‘s crazy for instance that writers such as JR Tolkien created a language of his own for the Elves in his books. Great piece!

    Your piece made me chuckle! Perhaps it sounds like nonsense, but there is lessons even there we benefit from learning!
