Misfit

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 27 March 2021, peruse. Not a limerick today, but this nonsense just jumped out at me. It even made me smile

I walked into the shoe shop,
I then perused the shelves,
I wanted Size Elevens,
But all I found were twelves.

The X Factor

for the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge of 27 March 2021, frightful. I beg pardon to any UK readers – I realise this is a UK prompt but most of my readers are probably more familiar with American pronounciations.

As a fog-horn, was not out of place,
For his singing, might wish to erase,
While he started, delightful,
He then tailed off to frightful,
As he shattered his cut-crystal vase.
