Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

You must never start a game of Monopoly
With a bird-watcher who plays it soppily
As you wonder how much your hotels will earn
He might start clamouring for "one more tern"

Banned in our house too. No.1 and only son was a maniac for it, would play for hours if we let him. Thought he might turn out to be a Rich Developer or a slum landlord instead of the gentle Graphic designer he now is.
