Green Filet Wordling – Wordle 190


Green Filet Wordling

Sustained use of wordle words
is such a strain.
It leaves me deranged, dullally
in a haze of indecision –
to mock or not to mock?

I traipse the floor
and feign confusion,
exchange rational thought
for the chains of delusion,
find no place for flame, or cape
give up and sulk in my cave
for the rest of the day.

Apart from the green filet of my title,
(unless pronounced in French)
every word in the list is some kind of rhyme,
Sheer bloody-mindedness makes me decline
to use them at the end of every line  –
which,  practised to excess,  makes doggerel.


You’ll no doubt find more sensible wordles – maybe even some beautiful ones – here

  2. Fun piece,
    No folderol
    with your doggerel
    unless served up with muscatel.
    Oh hell.

    Like you, I cringed at all those rhymes and for the same reason. My father often filleted the perch we caught, but I wasn’t any better at it than I am at end rhyme. I still have his fillet knife in its beautifully carved leather case. We do find a way through the words, no matter our first response. They keep us stretching outside our comfort zone and that is a really good thing, as you have proven here. You always remind me that although sometimes hard work, the wordles can be a world of fun. Thank you…

    You relate it so well to the words given. Yes, sometimes looking at the words one gets stumped for a while. What to write on that makes sense. Great lines Viv!
