Fandango’s One Word Challenge (12 November 2020)

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.
