FOWC with Fandango — Hapless


It’s March 14, 2023. 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 “hapless.”

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.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    The truly hapless ones

    awfully twist their turns

    they only fume and fret

    they never interpret

    the lovely ways of life

    which utterly is a delight

    who keeps their thoughts strong

    and never stick on thong

    they try to mend their thoughts

    with gratitude in their hearts

    staying happy changes the game

    feeling unfortunate is a plight

    throw yourself in a better light

    What’s this word before me?
    Before me what’s this word?
    Hapless? I am hopeless
    Hopeless, what a word

    hapless and homeless in sydney
    on any given night 116,000 people
    sleep rough in Australia’s most affluent city
    what kind of world is this
    how on earth can it happen
    there is something terribly wrong
