“It’s not always about the brains” ~ My Fantastic Friday Fiction Offering…

It's not always about the brain Friday Fiction poem blog

So here’s the thing.  I needed inspiration for my ‘fantastic friday fiction’ offering.  I wanted to write a piece of fiction for Friday Fiction (a linky run by fellow blogger Nicola Young that I’m new to and am keen to join in with).  I mused on how to flex my creative muscles (in between working on my #NextBigThing project) and it came to me in a blinding flash of well, inspiration!…

You see each week I choose a Footnote & Anecdote from my desk diary and I’ve decided to do an experiment 😉 I do love an experiment!  Each Friday I will share a short piece of fictional writing (obviously!) that has been inspired by the ‘Footnote’ that I chose the previous Monday for my blog linky.

And here it is:

It’s not always about the brains

Take a look at the smooth surface of the cabbage,

Compared to the nobbly brain ‘nodes’ of the cauli;

As the latter graduates from college,

They should, in theory, get more ‘lolly’.

~

But this isn’t always the case,

Oh no ’tis not so,

For the cabbage may have their wit

And more ‘get up and go’.

~

It’s not always about the brains

But how you think things through,

We’re all different after all,

There’s one ‘me’, there’s one ‘you’…

~

Inspired by the quote “Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.” ~ Mark Twain, 1835-1910, American author and humorist
