Word 6 - Frap

frap - to bind or wrap tightly with ropes or chains
The rough scaly rope slithers across the splintered porch, its tan threads bleached by the sun. Nearby, an unsuspecting wooden pole lazes in the shade. Suddenly, the rope lunges and winds itself around the pole. It soon realizes, however, that the prey is not satisfactory.
How a rope actually came to be twisted around an old, broken pole and how it came to rest on our back porch may always be a mystery...

  1. Perhaps the rope was attracted to its prey by virtue of its "pole"erizing characteristics.
