His demeanor, so flat bellicose,
Took not long for her to diagnose:
"Yes, you're handsome, dear Ben,
Like a god among men,
But your manner is utterly gross."

LEATHERY - LEFTOVER

Her rabbi concealed a smile
At her youthful attempt to beguile.
"Alef...tov...er, what's next?
I just can't read this text,
For I've not used my Hebrew a while."

clue one:

LEATHERY - LEFTOVER

Her rabbi concealed a smile
At her youthful attempt to beguile.
"Alef...tov...er, what's next?
I just can't read this text,
For I've not used my Hebrew a while."

LEATHERY - LEFTOVER

Her rabbi concealed a smile
At her y
outhful attempt to beguile.
"Alef...tov...er, what's next?
I just can't read this text,
For I've not used my Hebrew a while."

That was so clever on many levels Wofa

HANDLE - HANGOVER

He wanted to be Boston's goalie,
But they said he was too roly-poly.
He ate spinach and leeks
To lose tons in just weeks,
Rather than go very slowly.

Well done indeed!

RAMEN has all kinds of possibilities, but I'm going to have to think about RAINBOW a little more...

I didn't choose it to make things difficult; it's just what came up.
