And now, the winners!


In Second Place . . . Suze

Anarchic romps held after dark, the quest for mania proceeds unfettered beneath the stars. A forest clearing, flickering flames,  Bacchic worshippers dancing, leaping, guzzling wine from leather gourds. Now blind intoxication, we turn on the sacrificial, tear limb from limb and devour


In First Place . . . Georgie Moon

Girls stumbling on too-high heels.
Boys play-fighting, jumping into fountains.
Drunken kisses, knives with near misses.
Beer cans rolling, stomachs emptying.
Sirens nearing, handcuffs rattling.
Just another bacchanalian Christmas Eve in paradise.
Thank goodness I’m in bed by ten o’clock……


Congratulations winners, and don’t forget your nifty badges!

Come back next Wednesday for another Wicked Word
