Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

You can shine your shoes
You can shine your spanners
But you’ll never ever lose
If you have good manners


Jennifer H said...

So I had to go look up spanners.

I've heard that shining borrowed spanners would be good manners.

But I might be using spanners wrong.

Betsy said...

Spanners??? Must be one of those words we don't use up north! ha-ha...will have to go google that one!

Rachel said...

Amen!! Good manners are the key!
Spanners? Hmmmmmm... the wrench? or is that some Australian slang for something?

SandyCarlson said...

I salute the Bard of Melbourne on this fine morning. May you never be without your shiny spanners or your very good manners.

Maggie May said...

Good manners are sadly lacking
But they certainly have MY backing!
Spanners should be rubbed up clean
And kept at hand, if you know what I mean.
You never know when a wheel might fall
From your heelie, and would ruin all
Your fun for the day.
I have returned....... Maggie May!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Manners show like banners
For those who are reading
The demeanor of one’s breeding

Dave Coulter said...

My spanners need shining and my manners need refining! ;)

Sandi McBride said...

Uh huh, not to throw a monkey wrench in your poetry but maybe next time you should use the torch rather than the spanners to throw a little light on things!
