Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

At the very genteel Willow Manor
They fix every problem with a spanner
For a roof leak M'Lady phones a plumbing wench
And she duly arrives with an emotional wrench

Wench, eh.....hey thanks for dropping by!

Here's hoping that because you posted your witty verse just an hour ago, that you and your family are safe from the fires.

Good one David! xo

George said...

Very nice! Australia's fires made a national news network over here, so things must not be getting better. I hope you and your family continue to be safe.

Kim said...

No Kidding! I think you are very right about this. Some days I feel like a wench!

You asked about me being around. The best place to find me regularly is at: www.kim-creatingspace.blogspot.com

I would love to have you visit me there.

Here in the states we fix everything with duct tape. I am thanking God that you and your family are safe; this is getting horribly horrifying.

Carolina said...

Yesterday we had your fires and the flooding on the other side of Australia in the news here! Gosh! Are you OK? All the best David, stay safe.

ArneA said...

Still following the scary fires in Australia on the news.
Hopefully you and yours are well

Carolina said...

No apologies needed David, glad to hear that you are safe. Hope the fires and the flooding will very soon be over.
Our thoughts are with you.

Anemone said...

My thoughts is with YOU, and the Australians this dag.

Hugs from Anne

LOL! Oh, I could use a wench with an emotional wrench sometimes myself!!!

Moannie said...

Next time there is a job to fix I shall ask my darling bodger to send for the wench with the wrench

I keep reading about the wildfires in Australia. I hope you and all the blogets are staying safe. Please keep us informed.

How lovely and modern this poem is, David. You put women in the work force. Thank you! To all the messages of concern let me add my own hopes that the fires stay far away from you, your family, and your friends. Obviously we need an update on authorblog safety status.

Cheers! Safety! & Happy Sunday!

News of the Australia fires is being reported in my little county newspaper, so it's a major issue for sure. I hope you and your family continue to be safe.

David, I am completely and utterly honored!!! :D

Willow has so many dimensions and layers - it would be terribly hard to evoke her essence, but I'd say you've done an admirable job of capturing some of the things of which she is made. Well done!
