Rose is playing with her dolls
She spies a witch upon her wall.
She calls to her Gran,
“Gran come quick, there’s a witch upon the wall.
“What shall I do?”
Gran says, “Quick, get the wizard Lukie.”
Rose reaches in and grabs her boy doll.
Gran says, “Cast a spell, make him fly, he’ll defeat the wicked witch upon your wall.”
Rose manipulates Lukie’s limbs,
Says: “Lukie, Lukie, fly up high,
Smash that witch upon my wall.”
With a thrust she sets him a float
There’s a flash, a zip, then a zot,
And away goes the witch no longer upon her wall.
“Thank you Gran,” says the grateful Rose
Returning the wizard Lukie to his rightful spot.
Rose sits with her dolls
She looks over at her Gran
“Why are you old Gran? Are you a witch?”
“Such a question,” says Gran, cackling to herself.

Well done. The ending caught me by surprise!
Thanks Regina glad you stopped by
Good story. Unusual take, on an unusual prompt
You’re welcome 😉
Love Rose’s question, so typical of a child. My own youngest, when aged 6, asked how old was grandma, and when I told her (84 at the time), my daughter replied, ‘Well, isn’t it time she died.’ So the witch idea seems natural to me. 🙂
They can ask the most amazing of questions.
Yea. Shame they must grow to be teenagers … 🙂
Nice one Michael.
