Man Flu

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 27 January 2021, issue.

I was battling with flu uncontrolled,
When my missus came down with a cold,
With no thought for my issue,
She said “pass me a tissue”
So I passed one of mine, two weeks old!

Eeuw!

A Bit of Rough

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 26 January 2021, unique.

My girlfriend was one of the gentry,
Met her family, they quizzed rudimentary,
Her mum let out a shriek,
And said I was unique,
Which I’m not sure was meant complimentary.

The Pyrotechnician’s Demise

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

He had died when put finger in socket,
At his funeral, some fireworks in pocket,
Though just family and frieds,
Saw him off at the end,
At cremation, went up like a rocket!

Ouch!

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 24 January 2021, broken.

On his bike out in warm sunny weather,
He crashed our while at speed, hell for leather,
He crashed into a boulder,
Thought “I’ve broken my shoulder”,
As he felt the two halves grind together.

The two most common cycling injuries are broken wrists and collar bones. When you’re about to crash, you either stay holding on to the handlebar, in which case the impace breaks your collar bone, or you put your hand out to save yourself, inb which case the impact breaks your wrist. It hurts.

Had His Chips

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 23 January 2021, reverie.

When the Duc de Pommes Frites met his fate,
The excited crowd did celebrate,
Such spectacular reverie,
At occasion so severy,
As they chopped off the poor old duke’s pate.
