Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

I drove upon a bridge unmade
Never aghast, never afraid
They told me it was made of suede
But blow me down, it swayed and swayed.

Oh that a groan-up could do such a thing!

Thanks, Archie,

It's wonderful that the first comment is a great example of pun-upmanship.

You win this round, mate!

How cool! David, you've revealed a new side of yourself. Love the play on the word "errant". The whole thing brought a smile to my face and made me laugh.

Joy!

But your poem is very neat!

Hi Crazy Cath,

Ma'am, your rhymes have left me lost for words

I feel like a shepherd bereft of both his herds

Of that I'm sure!!

While the sun is sinking
