(Almost) inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 16 November 2021, ungainly.
The eight-foot tall extra was hired,
His big break in a movie, inspired,
But with ungainly appearance,
And lack of coherence,
The director announced he was fired.
Actually, the word ungainly reminds me of one man… Tommy Cooper.
He was a giant of a man who just looked awkward in everything he did. As a performer, he would have the audience in stitches before even doing anything. He was actually an accomplished magician and I thought it was so skillful, how he got tricks so perfectly “wrong”.
