Let Off Lightly

Clipart image of an angry wife, wielding a rolling pin

Inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 8 November 2021, commute.

When the man was caught poor old wife’s money a-flashing,
Court originally sentenced ear bashing,
But they chose to commute,
The guy’s sentence acute,
And they sentence instead hundred lashings.
