Survival of the Fittest

Survival of the Fittest

Stay alert, keep moving.
Watch out! That was close.
Every few seconds,
someone is eliminated.
One gets hit on the legs,
another on the shoulder.
Who will be next?
Should I chance
a look at the clock?
I hear the whistle.
Gym class is over.
I place the
red rubber ball
on the rack.

Thanks to Sarah Turnbull for this week's Wordsmith Studio Creative Prompt-Elimination. Who remembers playing dodgeball with those red rubber balls?

  1. We didn't even have gym classes, but we certainly played sting ball on the streets and in the yards outside. ouch!
