Car Troubles

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 January 2021, strategy.

My anger went right off the chart,
When my rusty old car wouldn’t start,
My life-saving strategy?
To recharge my battery,
Which allowed me, at last, to depart.

Out of Mothballs

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 16 January 2021,snug.

When my daughter got wed, I’ll admit,
It was years since I’d worn that outfit,
I gave daughter a hug,
Trousers felt rather snug,
When I sat at reception, they split.

Messy

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 15 January 2021, trouble.

As a child, not much good at complying,
I would discard my toys, leave them lying,
When my mum came along,
And unseen, stepped on one,
And a stray Lego brick sent her flying

Great Expectations

A husband who’d just newlywed,
Excitedly climbed into bed,
As his spirits were soaring,
His wife started snoring,
Have to wait ’til the morning instead.

Sweets for my Sweet

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 13 January 2021, delight.

When my daughter was learning to bake,
She decided to bake us a cake,
To her clear delight,
It was fluffy and light,
Even though she used salt by mistake.
