We were playing a game of gin rummy,
Munching snacks that were rancid and scummy:
Fermented raw gizzard
Of Triassic lizard.
The only one knocking? My tummy.

I was probably the only one among my childhood acquaintances who never learned gin rummy. I had to look it up just now to make something relevant.

BEDIZEN BEFORE

Dress Code

Jane in the jungle did implore
they couldn't enter society before
her mate Tarzan
exchanged his loin cloth bedizen
for a suit like Giorgio Armani wore


I played gin rummy and lots of card games growing up, Peter
but I had to look up BEDIZEN before I attempted this!


PS jennyjenny is so lucky to be the subject of your verse

BEDIZEN BEFORE

By skilfully using her wise pen
Sweet Candy this thread doth bedizen
But I wish that before
She goes out of our door
Two more words she would give else we dies, then!

Thanks for the word PLEACH. Never knew this English word though I know the technique. I thought: "what sort of a peach is a pleach?" I liu-ed it.

PLEACH POLITICIAN




Your name in verse: Not the first time you've deserved it.
PLEACH: in todays word of the day from Dictionary. com.


Word of the Day for Saturday, April 7, 2012

pleach \pleech\, verb:

1. To interweave branches or vines for a hedge or arbor.
2. To make or renew (a hedge, arbor, etc.) by such interweaving.
3. To braid (hair).

Robert got up very early, and went off to pleach the big hedge at the foot of the far pasture.
-- Mary Webb, Seven for a Secret
I might not be able to install plumbing fixtures or to pleach apple trees, but I know how to throw a good party.
-- Nancy Atherton, Aunt Dimity and the Family Tree
Pleach is derived from the Middle French word plais, which meant "a hedge."

I went to the congressman's speech:
His dark deeds he attempted to bleach.
He's a rank politician,
Tries to hedge his position.
It's time that they vote to impleach.

HEAD HEAL

My spell-check is angry with me.
