Say Ahhh

When my best friend’s wife left him, unwilling,
He became a recluse, it was chilling,
Cigarettes… instant coffee…
Lots of smooth, creamy toffee…
When she went back he needed ten fillings

To Ave or Ave Not

When Maria, a sister devout,
Found communion wine lying about,
She succumbed, a disaster,
In the morning, still plastered,
And it took her three days to dry out.

Speechless

Clipart image of a set of false teeth.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 14 January 2022, apart.

At the gallery down in Blackheath,
There my grandpa took out his false teeth,
Placed six inches apart,
They got mistaken for art,
And the hankie he’d left underneath.

Blackheath is part of London.

Consequences

A clipart image of a man looking suspiciously like Boris Johnson.

When a chap whom we’ll just call Bo Jo,
Joined a party downstairs in full flow,
Found despite all the drink,
He could not see the link,
Then said,”Sorry, I just didn’t know”.

The Cue Ball

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 13 January 2022, moot.

In the barber’s, a fellow called Peter,
Was asked what style of hair would be sweeter,
But the question was moot,
Pete was bald as a coot,
Said, “I’ve really just come to read meter”

The Accidental Goldmine

Clipart image of a bottle and glass of liquor.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 12 January 2022, essence.

There was once an upmarket distiller,
To his hooch added pods of vanilla,
While the drink didn’t sell,
With it’s sickly sweet smell,
He’d developed a world-class painkiller.

A Healthy Appetite

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 11 January 2022, cluster.

A gluttonous fellow called Bert,
Chose twelve portions of pie for dessert,
With the pies neatly clustered
He then topped them with custard,
Alas halfway through popped with a splurt!

The Last Billy Goat Gruff

Jokey clipart image of a billy goat.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 10 January 2022, whole.

An adventurous billy goat, Stu,
Crossed a footbridge for pastures anew,
But encountered a troll,
Quickly gobbled him whole,
And then boiled up a leisurely brew.
