Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

So here is your answer
On Lady Godiva
Great ballroom dancer
But not a good jiver


Hammer said...

But you should see what she shows you for a fiver...

Josie said...

Heh, Hammer is very clever.

David, your poem has a very Carl Sandburg feel to it.

Ogden Nash, Carl Sandburg, you've got them both going on here!

The Electric Orchid Hunter said...

Nah, she'd jiggle too much for the jive!

You are naughty...

Maggie May said...

The County Of Wessex used to be REAL
When Anglo Saxons roamed our land!
Thomas Hardy loved the feel
Of it, and used it underhand.

He spread the rumour
That it was just myths.
Now David, with his humour
Thinks our county don't exist!

The 3rd, son, our Prince Ed,
The Earl of Wessex
Is he dead?
No, he's REAL, his county spreads from Wales to Essex!

For anyone who wonders what the Hell I'm talking about, (& David knows) its in my meme!

Sam said...

You had the wrong answer
Due to conjunctiva
Was a Wessex Lancer
A great Morris Dancer!

The Mighty Sam

Merisi said...

Way too much jiggle?

quilly said...

Lady Godiva without a care,
Rode to town on a big gold mare,
All the men came out to stare,
Cuz the lady was riding bare --

And not a one of them gave any thought to dancing standing up.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Well done David...

Lin said...

... our unadorned lady proves quite the survivah!

Apologies - the old phoenix has risen briefly from the word ashes again.
