Fandango’s One Word Challenge (12 November 2020)

Prompt image for the Fandango One Word Challenge prompt

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC), arrest. An extra helping of nonsense today!

Got drunk celebrating a sale,
Arrested and thrown into jail,
The morning arrived,
And our prisoner cried,
“I’m afraid I still feel pretty frail”.

        1. Actually, I’m interested. You self-publish, right? I was thinking of doing that, when I’ve got maybe 100 decent poems. The important thing is no initial outlay, but I’m not fussed how much money it makes. When I looked, Kindle seemed ideal. But I suspect a lot of people have the same idea…

          1. Yep, Kindle is ideal and costs nothing. The hard part is really getting the word out, competing in an over-crowded market and trying to advertise it. But if you’re not too concerned about making money and are happy with just a few folk having a read, then go for it.

      1. Oh that was a long time ago.. good for you! What an awesome way to celebrate!
        Me? Last time was in 2008 when I had an anaphylactic shock from one of the drinks I’ve taken that night.

        That was the last time I had a drink until 2016 when an apple flavored beer came about and I just had to taste it… just a bottle, didn’t get drunk… not missing the headache! Haha

        1. There were a spate of fruit-flavoured ciders out here a few years ago, they were very pleasant but you could get drunk without really realising you were drinking alcohol. But I tend to think of them all as full of sugar now so avoid except for special occasions.
