#882 – Kapwing!

Seriously, who makes a robot with fingernails?

There must be another fairy

There’s a fairy who will visit –
I believe it is the truth –
and leave loot beneath my pillow
when she finds a fallen tooth.

There must be another fairy –
I suppose it is the case –
who disposes all the toenails
that I’ll pile about my place.

But this second tidy fairy
only puts them in the trash.
She’ll ameliorate my messes
but won’t ever give me cash.

So I’ve put my extra clippings
‘neath my pillow, just in case
I’ve been leaving all my leavings
in an unbefitting place.

Special mention to fellow bookworm Alex Bjelica for suggesting “Ameliorate” as today’s challenge word.

Challenge me with a difficult vocabulary word! Leave a comment with a word for me to attempt to include in a poem (make sure to include your name, and if you have one, your website). If I pick yours, I’ll mention that you suggested it in the post and link to your site and twitter handle.
