FOWC with Fandango — Fountain


It’s November 22, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “fountain.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

    I like this one Fan


    I am a little fountain
    Spouting, trickle trickle
    Coming out a brassy nozzle
    Never ever fickle

    I’d rather write bout fountains
    Than insane war Ukraine
    My fountain’s always peaceful
    Quiet, selfless, sane

    Fountains give me anytime
    Don’t give me Donald T
    Chaotic, unreliable
    It’s fountain (yep) for me

    See why I liked this word Fan?
    Spouting trickle free
    All my drivvel, nonsense
    Spouting just from me

    My Spike RIP coming out Fan……..

    Did you know he was bipolar?

    And ill at the end. He told them
    he was sick but they all thought he was joking.
    As you would…..When he died they realised
    not so. His gravestone bears the
    line ‘I told you I was ill’ in Irish gaelic…..

      I honestly didn’t know anything about Spike Milligan. Sounds like he was quite a guy.

        I saw Spike Milligen on stage in London in his theatre piece “The Bed Sitting Room”. He was one of my favourites. Strange but very funny – my type of humour. I was then a teenager.

          His strange behaviour was generated in a manic state. He was bipolar……..Much creative work is created in a state of mania as was bipolar Robin Williams…… is I……

    the fountain of youth
    was a goer for a while
    until some bastard greek deity
    blew it up recently
    said it was much more fun than
    turning narcissus into a daffodil
