Working Up an Appetite

Clipart of a dog with a bone

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 13 December 2020, discover.

As a boy I went hunting for treasure,
The dog saved me digging alone,
We both dug with vigour,
The hole became bigger,
But all that we found was a bone.

  1. Oh yes! Great Limerick. We’ve all been there. My granddad used to like metal detecting. He’d find all kinds of stuff he call ‘leverites’ they’d be bones, nails, bits of wire, cans and junk. He’d call them ‘leverites’ as in ‘leave-her-right there’ lol
