Relieved

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 25 July 2021, calendar.

While at college my friend was a dandy,
But caught pox one night when feeling randy,
Abstained calendar year,
Till he got the all clear,
Which was good news indeed for his handie.

Back from vacation. More later.

Who Won the Week (18 July 2021)

In response to Fandango’s Who Won the Week posts, I have been looking at my own newsfeeds.

Let me tell you about my odyssey.

Spick and Span

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 18 July 2021, thorough.

A street-cleaner friend from Alsace,
Kept his home looking spotless, first class,
Meticulous, thorough,
As he tidied the borough,
Then at night slept with broom up his ass.

Of All He Surveys

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 July 2021, realm.

Touring kingdom, king passed by some trees
Breathed in pollen and gave a great sneeze
His knees started to swell,
Then he let out a yell,
He had come down with Dutch Realm Disease.

Dutch Elm Disease is a fungus which attacks mainly elm trees, often with fatal consequences. It gets around, spreading through both Europe and North America, although it is thought to have originated in Asia. It only acquired the name Dutch because it was first pinpointed by Dutch botanists in the 1920s.

In Loving Memory

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 16 July 2021, altruistic.

Made his fortune from mining and blasting,
Built a church, promised life everlasting,
But his tomb in Pine Hill,
Now makes fine urinal,
In a fate we might say in contrasting.
