It is with consternation

I see ‘anticipation’

Becomes the side view topic for today;

I pray this aberration –

Supposed recreation –

Will not become a feature here to stay;

Thematic allocation

Might well cause constipation

In inspiration for what one should say,

So that all cogitation

Could just create inflation

Thus causing all ideas to blow away!

*thinks lots of thunks about the heading, and then goes*  AHA!  Eureka, and all that!

A  striking occupation

For sure, an’ ’tis a pay shun,

But in anticipation of more pay!

 (Really Awful Rhyme by Colonialist)

 ‘Anticipation’.always makes me remember the inimitable way the word was brought out in Rocky Horror Picture Show:

Tim Curry as Dr Frank N Furter
Frank N Furter

‘… I’m just a sweet transvestite   

From transsexual Transylvania

So come up to the lab   

And see what’s on the slab

I see you shiver with antici-pation…’

    I did not do this challenge as my mind kept going back to the Rocky Horror treatment of the word. Antici…..pation will never be the same .
