Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

When Drake took on the Spanish Armada
There wasn’t a lot left in his larder
A lettuce, two carrots and half a pumpkin
Just as well his opponent was no country bumpkin

You are always so much fun for me, David! I wish I was half the poet you are. Then I could answer and feel good about it. But I am not that good. YOU, sir are amazing!

Said Drake, "Hark and take heed all you souls,
'cause we must finish this 'ere game of bowls,
Then get to your Galleons
As quick as them stallions
And fill their big ships with big holes!"

Ah, all the ingredients for a perfect pumpkin salad. You have had pumpkin salad before, right?

Lovely bit of history in this rhyme, David. It's true! Country bumpkins seldom owned or captained ships.

Cheers!
