Writing Prompt #22

Homonyms

If, like me, it’s been a while since you’ve heard this word – homonyms are words which have the same spelling and pronunciation but have different meanings.

This week I want you to use the word “Crane” (which can mean several things) to start your piece.

  1. THE CRANE
    “I’m here about the crane.”
    “The crane?”
    “Yes, the crane.”
    “What about the crane?”
    “Well it’s up there.”
    “Yes, so?”
    “Well it shouldn’t be. It’s dangerous.”
    “I assure you, there is no danger. It’s only temporary.”
    “So you know it’s there?”
    “Well of course we do. We put it there.”
    “You put it there? Why would you do that?”
    “We put it there because we have a job to do. When we’re finished we’ll dismantle it and remove it.”
    “Dismantle it!”
    “Yes, we take off the top, break down the neck and take apart the legs for easy shipping.”
    “What! How can you do that!? That’s so cruel!”
    “Cruel? What are you talking about? It’s just metal.”
    “Metal? What are you talking about? “
    “The crane.”
    “That’s what I’m talking about.”
    “The construction crane.”
    “No the bird.”
    “Oh.”
    “Oh.”
    “Never mind.”
