Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

The invitation to supper at the well-heeled Hannagans
Gave no hint of the constant shenanigans
They fought over menus and squabbled over soup
And flicked ice cream with a long-handled scoop

oh an ice cream fight, how delicious. i wonder do they go on like this in front of the guests or save it for behind closed doors, keeping up their persona. hmm...

I really like this one! I myself would've had a heck of a time finding a word to rhyme with shenanigans, but you pulled it off with panache...quite lovely!

It all ryhmes as you can tell
the content dough I dont know
what it made me fell
so you can see
we can all write cheap

But, it was so hot, I withdrew in a hurry!"

Unfortunately there are plenty of Hannigans flicking soup and ice cream about!

Great verse, David. You are certainly on a roll!

Shocking waste of ice cream. Should never be used in a food fight. Tsk, tsk.

Now that sounds like fun! I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

This is great....I haven't thought about food fights in some time and with ice cream? All the more fun.
