Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Private zoo owner Clementine James
Told me she had a real flair for names
To prove her great wit, she paused during flossing
To call the hippo "Crit" and christen the zebra "Crossing"

Hi David,
So how can we get your synchronicity novel in the U.S.? Would love to read it. If you've got any synchronicity stories to share, please email us and we would be delighted to post them or use them in our book.

Best,

LOL! This one really impressed me. You managed to rhyme and create puns at the same time. You even kept the rythm and meter in tact! Amazing! You're too good, David!

Cheers!

But she really put her life in jeopardy
When she called to the cat, "Come on 'Leapardy'!
Ouch! sorry!

That last line is the cleverest play on words...

Very well done!
