Sammiscribbles Weekend writing prompt #140 – Vintage

EFCFAC70-24E1-43E9-A215-262D3D28F74C

Many a good tune

coaxed from the body of a

fine vintage fiddle,

Vigorous use of the bow

and some sensitive plucking.

A young girl from Glasgow called Jeanie

was struggling to unclip her bikini

when I offered to help

she let out a loud yelp

and said No, I think she’s a miserable meanie.

Friday Fibonacci, Crossing the lines

NVR (1)

Stop

look

listen,

for the shrill

blast on the whistle,

a warning to the unwary,

or a promise of release to the broken-hearted.

Funtime with Crimson’s Creative Challenge #35

picture “uphill path” from Crispina Kemp

Sally lived at the top of the hill,

when she walked into town the boys got a thrill,

by design or just by chance

she often forgot her underpants,

every day the menfolk hoped for a breeze

when she went to pick up the groceries,

her mother said Sally this will have to stop

but her dad said she should also forget her top

why say that to her said his despairing wife

because I won’t have a bill for the rest  of my life.

Friday funny #Limerick

Big-eared David was dating  big-nose Eileen

who was determined to prove she was keen

she said  I love you, I’ll show it,

lean back and I’ll blow it,

and the poor boy said no, that’s obscene

Brother Alphonso started to feel rather pleased with himself. Although it was considered a violation of the rules of the Order, a form of vanity. He found it very hard not to let a smile show on his face, just a slight upturn of the lips. He smoothed the parchment and prepared his writing tool ready to transcribe the last two lines. He had been working on the Ogham script for fourteen months. Now he was the first and only person able to read the legends as they were written. Sadly his excitement at the translation proved too much for his elderly body as he collapsed to the floor having suffered  a fatal heart attack.

no-junk-mail-1I knew a girl whose name was Kate

she used to stand by her garden gate,

she would flash her thighs

when the boys passed by

perhaps that’s why she suddenly put on weight
