A Sidekick By Any Other Name

An amigo, a second hand,
Someone who will understand
These windmills that turn in his mind
Whose malevolence only he finds
Never will I understand you see
How such epitomizes me
I have rode by his side
Through thin, through thick
Oh he has hit, he has cursed me
But never once did he kick

The rules of the Flash 55 challenge are simple. Write a piece of poetry or prose on a subject of your choice in precisely 55 WORDS. For the optional extra part of this month’s challenge, consider writing about The Classics in whichever form appeals: Novels, Music, Art.

For my Flash 55, I chose the ever hapless Sancho Panza pondering the modern phrase for his role in Don Quixote’s life.

As I also wrote it in silly prose, I add it to the list for NaPoWriMo.

  1. I picture this fellow on a donkey for some reason 🙂 I especially like the lines “Never will I understand you see
    How such epitomizes me” Perhaps it’s I who rides the donkey 🙂 Enjoyed

So? What do you think?
