Tongue Tied

Photo by Vera Arsic on

Today Tony and Tina had a tiff

Shouting slanderous sayings

Making many mistakes and

Horribly hurting hearts

Maybe Monday must make

Amends for amorous argument

Word Play

Pete and Polly purchased seats

For the public pantomime play

People pause to pay the playwright

Pleased with the performance

Pete and Polly pop into Penelope’s

Paul was pulling tasty taffy

Trying to taunt twins

Trey was taken with Teresa

Twiddling her toes

And Terry turned twice around

Teaching Tina to twist

Foxy Friend

Frank’s fox was fierce
showing fearsome fangs
Frank’s fox was fast
frolicking in the field
Frank’s fox was frantic
fighting feral felines
Frank’s fox feasted
feeding on fried food
Frank’s fox found friendship
with a fox from Freemont
Frank’s fox is now a father…
