inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 19 October 2021, remnant.

There was an old woman called Rose,
Who from remnants constructed her clothes,
But in place of a shirt,
Wore a turqoise blue skirt,
And old knickers to cover her nose.

An enticing young woman called Jill,
Met drunk soccer star, moved in for kill,
While his state was hypnotic,

And she ended up winning, one-nil!

Asking everybody to come up with their own ending was fun, I might try that again, so be warned!

Who bestowed him a gift in his hat,

Looking forward to your comments. And be warned, I want funny!

When a robber came stuck up his store,
He resolved it would happen no more,
For men meaning no good,

And the next time one tried, he yelled “FORE”.

Let me tell you today ’bout my mate,
Who went out on a blistering date,
But drank so much, unstable,
Ended under the table,
So she left him, right there, to his fate.

A woman who hailed from Havana,
Energetically played the piana,
When one day, feeling sapped,
The girl’s G string snapped,
There was no-one left red-faced more than her.

Between two best friends, conflict arose,
When they loved the same girl, came to blows
In a fissure protracted,
The smaller boy acted.
When he punched his mate square on the no

The Girl of his Dreams

My best friend was a randy young buck,
Met a beauty who left him lovestruck,
Complimentary, then flirty,
Then incredibly dirty,
And then, sadly for him, he woke up
