Magpie Tales#61

Another great picture-prompt from Tess at Willow Manor . . . to refresh the Calliopean Muse





"A glass of wine is really fine,"
the sober poet mutters,
"But left in charge of a glass that large,
then each verse limps and stutters!
Resist the glass! I shall not pass
more tipple through my lipsy,
lesht Magpie vershe comesh out the worshe
becaushe the Toctor'sh dipshy!"

  7. Very witty, Dr. Faustus! Love the imagery of "each verse limping and stuttering!" And what a great invention: it hadn't occurred to me to always carry a breathalyzer! I like how you continued the theme from one prompt to the next. Well done!

  15. You rarely fail to amuse, Doctor. I suggest Angostura Bitters.

  16. Take no notice of Trellissimo, Doctor. That stuff sobers you up. Which in your case would spoil the fun.

  18. Ah you're fabulush!! What rhythm!! ...oh for Pete's sake is that right?? I've just mispelled the damn word 7 times and it still doesn't look right.

    How did you get to be so clever? Not by overdrinking, I'm sure.

Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
