Hokum and Balderdash Wordle 138

wordle 138


A cloak of innocence,
merely skirts the issue:
The lens of truth will prevail,
reveal the wild and cruel.
In pursuit of happiness,
chasing cash and goods is useless.
Better far the pursuit of love.
To be beloved of Venus
preferable to Croesus.

Do visit the Sunday Whirl to find a selection of proper poems!

    Well done Viv — nice use of these utterly defeating words (I speak from my own perspective as I found them very hard to work with for some reason…but love what you’ve done!)


  4. Mr. Walker says:

    Viv, great ending, and a timely allusion to Croesus.
