Dolce The Ulcer #Prose4T

By | May 9, 2015

For those who regularly read my blogs (and thank you if you do), you’ll know that this is a pesky topic this week.

The “thing” now has a name as that seems to make it easier to deal with and I’m not so much honouring it with a piece of prose, but inviting it to leave!  Linking up with lovely @vicwelton for #Prose4T.


Dolce The Ulcer


I have an angry ulcer in my mouth
I wish it would b**ger off
It hurts when I do something – 
like laugh, or sneeze or cough

I’ve called it “Dolce”
It’s big, fluid-filled and red
I tried to give it a name
I disliked in my head

Not after the designer,
Oh no, what would I do that?
But instead after a silly singer
With a novelty tune that was tat

My dear Hubbie said a line from it
He got greeted with a glare
I’m hoping, very soon
Dolce will be gone from our lair

But, for now, Dolce is quite happily growing
Causing discomfort and pain
I hope he b**gers off quietly 
Without a big squishy parade 
In time I won’t miss it
In my quest to get smiley
It’s been another challenge 
Dolce, soon you’ll “mean nothing to me”
Aaah…..begon you ullllllccccceeeeeeerrrrrr!
(Kind of to the tune of Vienna)

This isn’t “Dolce” btw, believe me you don’t want to see it!!

Thanks so much lovely!
It was a good distraction to write it, Dolce has been surpassing itself today in terms of yuckiness, I’m hoping my dentist can assist with getting it to buzz off tomorrow. X
