A Muddled Wordle

wordle 135 

A lanky loon
with silky hair
and murky skin
drank some whisky,
became befuddled
and fell in a puddle.

He finished the race,
quite out of breath
with a pain in the bum
and down in the mouth.

all but two words from  Brenda’s Sunday Whirl.   For some reason I couldn’t take the words seriously, perhaps because Jock is 80 today and we’re both acting out our second childhood.

    Thanks for the smile, Viv. A belated birthday wish to Jock. Sorry for the late visit, but life can be very busy and crazy right now.

    Wonderful! I couldn’t manage these words at all–hit too many buttons, but I love what you did with them!


  3. This is so fun. I looked at the wordle and left it at that. Now you make me want to rethink that. Enjoy your course–I await poetry on ecosystems. I’m taking one on Early American Poetry…isn’t it great that we keep on learning!

    belated Happy Birthday; thanks for the smiles
    much love…

    Birthdays are great for having fun. Jock might be eighty but he’s not a dinosaur, wishing you both a great day. Thanks for the smile,

    Well it certainly had a brisk rhythm to it and as other say it is a fun piece. Having wet gear when running can chafe a bit, so I sympathise with him.

    Imaginative combo!
    I imagine the last two lines mean he bit himself in the behind? 🙂

    I came to read a haiku about ‘seven’ and found this instead! LOVE!!! Happy Birthday Jock and enjoy the second time around…childhood, that is!


  9. good for you! have fun – just hope you do end up with a pain in the bum!

    A befitting birthday piece..fun and frolics..


  11. Ha, this was the perfect piece to cheer up a rather dreary and rainy November day here in Aachen. Thank you, Viv! And a dazzlingly Happy Brithday to Jock the Scorpio – may you two enjoy beautiful times together!


  12. being befuddled with whiskey is a great birthday verse, but no racing! ever I say!

    You needn’t be serious all the time, and I, for one, am in the mood for some levity today. Thanks so much! And happy birthday to Jock! 😉

  14. I don’t think whiskey’s the problem. Racing. That’s the problem. Very bad for you.


  15. It’s great! Have fun today.


  16. Misky says:

    Many happy wishes to Jock!


  17. I love a bit o’ nonsense and this is perfect.

    heh heh! I like a bit of fun. Happy Birthday, Jock! A bit Lear-ish. He of the ‘nonsense’ verse.
