A Poem ~~ Friday’s Hunt v1.23-- "W" is for ...

(1) The letter "W" is for Wickett's Remedy:  A book by Myla Goldberg telling of a young medical student whose marriage went sort of caplooey, especially until the begging of WWI when his wife became preoccupied by becoming a nurse.   

Wickett, the young medical student, went off the deep end by dropping out of med school and becoming a medicine man.  He invented his tonic and called it Wickett's Remedy, which became a magic cure-all for many ails.  Unfortunately not for their rocky marriage.  I have not read the book but do have it on my reading list. 

In my spine poem* below I used "Wickett's Remedy" for a subtitle, but more importantly as a first line legal remedy for a bad person Caught up in his misdeeds.

The Garden of Evil;
Wickett's Remedy
Wickett's Remedy
Plea of insanity
My dark place

Today I am linked with  at The Imaginary Garden with Real Toads,

*Spine Poem":  A poem composed of book titles, mine are generally accompanied by a picture of them stacked up in order.  I then leave the stack on a shelf or table in the library. I doubt that many who see this will appreciate it one bit as a poem.  Sometimes they aren't much.

I'm one of your old time readers and you're in jail? This must be code for something, but I don't know what. I'm sure I'll find out at some point.

Have a fabulous couple of weeks away from your blog. ☺
Last week I was in Barnes and Noble and found a book entitled Friendswood. Curiosity got the better of me and I picked it up. It's fiction and written by a woman that grew up in Friendswood. She now lives in Brooklyn and teaches at Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ. That's my husband's old school. I bought it, but haven't had time to even start reading it yet. Have you read it?

I'm sorry you're in jail. Whatever it is doesn't sound good. Hurry back.
Wickett's remedy sounds quite intriguing...
It's been such a long time since I wrote a poem for Real Toads. I just can't find time for everything I love. I do hope you make bail soon! Thank you so much for linking up to Friday's Hunt. Hope you have a great week ahead!
Great post, sorry to hear you are in jail...hope you are sprung soon!!!
The book review sounds great. Must read it! Sorry about jail. Hope you are back real soon. Have a great week.
