Initiation

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 9 April 2021, underwear.

A boy pulling amorous stunt,
Had just won first prize at the hunt,
As he reached for her bra,
His frustration went far,
“It unfastens”, she purred, “at the front”

A Gap in the Market

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 8 April 2021, prodigious.

A young writer I know, named Colleen,
She can’t string two words, but she’s keen,
Though her work is prodigious,
She writes nothing prestigius,
So she settled for stories, obscene.

Hungry for Success

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 7 April 2021, coach.

Veteran trainer, his will was long gone,
Anxious owner took steps to dethrone,
So they hired a new coach,
With a different approach,
And then dropped down the league like a stone.

Double Teamed

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 6 April 2021, crew.

A friend of mine, children had two,
And together, they formed motley crew,
At tea, just for a dare,
They set fire to her hair,
Put it out with her freshly-made brew

Hereditary

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 5 April 2021, patriarch.

The old king was an ancient antique,
And in matters of state, he was weak,
He was asked to examine,
What had caused the state’s famine,
And said, “Hang on, let’s just ask this leek”.
