Break A Leg

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 2 December 2020, tourist.

To that posh ski resort on frontier,
This man comes with all the best gear,
But while attempting grand prix,
Headlong into a tree,
I don’t think we’ll see him next year.

Actually I thought that image was particularly beautiful. By Simon Steinberger from Pixabay

Take a Break

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 1 December 2020, comfort.

While the shoppers around him perused,
The assistant no choice but excuse,
His feet were so worn,
What with bunions and corns,
What he needed was comfortable shoes.

Expectations

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 29 November 2020, putrid.

When looking at the White House,
There isn’t long to go,
Just six more weeks of waiting,
And then you’ll have your Joe.

All the dodgy dealings,
And all those putrid smells,
With guns and immigration,
White supremacy, as well.

We need to give the man time,
Some time to turn the tide,
But we have expectations too
There will be no free ride.

The CO2 emitters
How loud will be their voice?
When climate verson system,
What will be his choice?

I realise he’s restricted,
I’m not quite so naive,
But lest we see some progress,
The world will not believe.

Ouch

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 29 November 2020, succcumb.

My uncle, sad tale, must relate
Home improvements have sealed poor guy’s fate,
He hammered his thumb,
Turned blue, then succumbed,
Now heavenly angels await.

There’s some more family nonsense here:

Any Nibbles Today?

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 28 November 2020, modicum. A particularly silly one today, because Saturday ends in “y”.

Whilst drunk and decidedly stewed,
The trawlerman stripped himself nude!
Please exhibit a modicum,
You’re harming our cod income,
Behave or you’ll end up fish food!
