That’s a pint mug, and it contains freshly-made tea, so you can guess what I will be doing for the next… while. Ahhhhhh, ‘scuse me.

Rushed off my Feet

I was leaving my house at a pace,
But I went without tying my lace,
I stepped onto the drive,
I began to nosedive,
And I tripped over flat on my face.

And Annette ended up very wet!

Seems the worst of our COVID is pasr,
At their zeniths, our rulers stood fast.

Before someone behaves like an ass.

Overqualified

He was never a shining bright spark,
And was stuck what career to embark,
But his charm it was whimsical,
So chose pathway political,
And now he’s running the f’in country

Consequences

The husband’s new camera got crushed,
So he scolded his wife ’til she gushed,
She got tired of tirade
So she lifted a spade?
And she battered his head to a mush!

Unexpected

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 10 May 2021, fish.

A young man, who was nought but a nipper,
Got excited for seeing a stripper,
But expecting hot groover,
Found just paint remover,
As his mates stiched him up like a kipper.

Prophetic

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.
