Three Women Wildly Battle With UNO Cards


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

THREE WOMEN WILDLY BATTLE WITH UNO CARDS

The Truno Tribe Members Unabashably Compete

     The post-July 4 weekend found three women—Lousy-Hand Lois, Ardent Arlene and Coy Carolyn, playing animated games of Uno. They decided to call themselves the Truno Tribe—“Tr” for trio, “uno” for Uno. Below is the poem they penned as they played:

All is fair in love and Uno,

          Especially with the players Truno.

Are we true? Definitely no!

          We cheat and bleat and cheat so.

Red, blue, now yellow, now green.  

          All who listen hear us scream.

Skip. Reverse—Change to the left.

          What? You lost. Are you bereft?

Wild women we are—wild cards we give.

         Making us anxious to raid the fridge.

We groaned and gasped and sighed,

          Before we finally said goodby.

     Ok, so much for great poetry! But we had so much fun, with lots of laughter and frustration, that the one of us thwarted a migraine headache that was trying to disable her!

  1. It seems we are possible related, although I have to say we did battle with cards… the monopoly deal. The game is purely addictive. http://imwithoutwax.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/till-6-in-the-morning/
