Come-Uppance

Clipart of a man dancing and celebrating.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 1 December 2021, flaunt.

A well-to-do viscount called Uli,
Bought a palace for pastimes unruly,
But while Uli wealth flaunted,
Found the mansion was haunted,
And the poor guy got hanged by the ghoulies.

I suspect you might need to be British to get the full benefit of this one! Sorry.
