Todays Prompt is USE THESE WORDS

This will be a test...
PLEASE... If you read my blog and don't usually leave a comment, I request that you help as well.

Today we are asking for some help with the USE THESE WORDS prompt . I've done this before in FairyLand so I know it works... here we go...

Get a book of any kind, randomly open it to any page and the first word you see is the word we want. The only exception to this is if it is a very common word in the English language, ( so, you, if, at, is, the, he/she, etc.) We use a dictionary or a word divider when we do ours.
We request that you do this until you have five random words and place them in order in the comments area. Please do no more than two entries per person... Thank you ...

We use ten words each time we do this prompt, so we put your words with the next persons five words and do the prompt...OURS ARE...


Thanks for your help!!

  4. Employing his imaginary friends,
    Ignoring their fumbling complaints
    Of the unnatural restraints
    He forces them round those dangerous bends.
    He specialises in this kind of game,
    This fantastic kind of venture
    Finding a dragons lost denture
    Gum limpness is affecting its hot flame.
    He works before the dreams can lose traction
    And fade away to nothingness
    For he can only sit and guess
    What will happen if he takes no action.
    Will fairies sit round crying plaintively
    For danger won't from flameless dragons flee.
