Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

He knew his times tables like the Grimms knew their fables
And in architecture lectures, he could name all the gables
He could throw a pinpoint pass, even make us laugh at farce
And he could calculate the mass of an antique crystal glass

Intriguing verse David!
Now who could this man be?......

You are a poet no doubt.....but he was a jack of all trades? Or at least four trades. LOL

Who is this man?

Only the posh say glarce! (glass)
What else rhymes with that?!!!
Glass usually pronounced like lass!

In England I suppose anything goes as there are so many regional dialects! I wonder if it is the same in Aussie land?

I have the answer to your query
The man you ask of is quite clearly
My loved and talented grandson Frazer
Not known for being a navel gazer
This gifted boy can't get a job
The credit crunch his future did rob.

The mention of Brothers Grimm hooked me. Never knew till today that glass could be pronounced that way. I can think of some other words to rhyme with farce that wouldn't have been as nice.

Cheers!
