Counting beans


One Hundred Thirty Three
These beans, to be, I’m Jack
and talk for stalks
Fee-fi-fo-fum

One Hundred Thirty Four
and smell the blood of british man
for goose that lay a golden egg
Fee-fi-fo-fum

One Hundred Thirty Five
and grind his bones to make the bread
One Hundred Thirty… Thirty …
darn… One, Two, Three

  1. Ha. Better get working. You make me have sympathy with the poor bean counters but maybe tjey shouldn’t grind people’s fkngers to the bone. I am sorry I wasn’t able to do your rbrandt prompt, Bjorn. It was fun. K.

  2. A super little allegorical piece. Pulling off a light piece with such breezy aplomb – and to such entertaining effect – requires a deft touch. This is a treat!

  3. Hahaha I would hate to have to start that count over again. You may remember several years back they had a recount in Florida and all the hanging chads. Jacks tale has been retold quite a few times.

I love your feedback
