Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

It seems some couples couldn't be keener
To find a townhouse in Murrumbeena
There’s fields of grape and orchards of peach
But alas, no beach within their reach

Lovely chuckle to start my evening! Thanks as always, David!

No need for sandals
Or suntan lotion
When you are so far away
From any kind of ocean.


Eat those grapes,
My darling peach
Stay inside and read a book
Until the ocean's within your reach.

Great rhyme for the evening. Fields of grape and orchards of peach sound wonderful.

There is no beach? Can be surfing in the bathroom! LOL.

Come to Old Blighty and cool yourself down.
You're near to a beach in 'most any town!
The weather is cold, the skies are drear....
But there's plenty of water..... the sea's always near!

Have racked my brains enough
But find the rhyming tough
David, your talent is umatched
Though across the seas I searched.

Beautiful post as usual David...!!
If you find time pls do visit 'Festival Of Colours' that I just posted. I was inspired by your G is for Ganesh & the Bangles photographs, though the photos are nothing great and far anything you normally shoot/post. Thanks.

Are there no hardware stores with bags of sand in Murrumbeena for those sad keen couples?

You look around and find a place
A real nice house with fancy drapes
Delicious fruit, but make a case
For lack of beach is sour grapes

So they went where there's sand, and a marching band

And the whole place hangs from a rubber band

The stars are low and the wind is high

With swans and starfish floating by!

Two out of three. I love the beach, but you can't eat sand.
Very nice.

I love the way you are getting the whole world rhyming [and punning]
