Prophetic

clipart of a sinking ship.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 9 May 2021, buoyant.

After new rules, the prophet set sail,
But they never predicted the gale,
Such a shame this clairvoyant,
Was not very buoyant,
As they ended up dead as a doornail.

    1. Hi Caz, Thanks. I’ve written better, that last line doesn’t scan properly, but it’s nice to contemplate a daily limerick over breakfast. We’re okay, we have both been vaccinated now so I don’t really have a problem to go out. Just don’t have much reason to, either. Glad to hear you’re feeling better, it is a slow process.

      1. A limerick over breakfast – love that 🙂 Glad you’re both well and that you’ve been vaccinated. I’ve got my second injection at the end of the month and hopefully after that I’ll manage to get away on a holiday. I really could do with some sun.

        Since I wrote my last post on “pacing” I’ve really been trying to get out for a walk each day and do some light exercise. I know it makes sense so that keeps me motivated.

        Stay safe and well x
