Peevery

Raconteur beware!
It matters not the color of hair
nor whether shoes be cheap.
Flights of fowl, be they black or blue
likewise mean naught
lest their blackness be
to carry your plot.

  3. I'm actually fond of a black plot, but probably not in the way you're using it. I think you're inferring "foul" when you write "fowl." All writers should beware of releasing a flock of smelly sentences. "Raconteur" is a great word, and I love what you did with "cheap flights." Very clever. I have always enjoyed your writing.

  7. You always make me go "huh?" then I need to read over and over and scratch my head then *somebody turns the lights on* and I have an ah-ha moment.

    I love the word raconteur. It means so much! Kudos Babs! :)

    p.s. no I don't know why I called you Babs, only that it seemed fitting and I felt like it
