GROAT - GROTESQUE

A grotesque gap in the stern is sinking my boat
Home Depot sale's on grout might keep my boat afloat
I don't wanna
But I'm gonna
Get some grout to grout the gap for less than a groat laugh

It's always unwise to insult
Practitioners of the occult;
If an oddball white witch
Is called a mad bitch,
A darker-hued spell may result.

Ever see then on the same stage at the same time? cool


It's only ACB who comes from the podunk village, jj - I come from the up-market, highly civilised city of Lancaster, Lancashire, which is far removed from the stinks and stews of London (removed by better part of 300 good miles!) wink

Yeah, that's what I meant, Rhuby, but I was too polite to say so.

That's true, Rhuby, he is the essence of polite-ness.

Well, I tended to use the cellars of coffee bars and play washboard in skiffle groups. smile

But, in any case, that was prolly a bit before your time in The Great Wen wink

And you're quite right: la politesse is the leit motif of our exponent of the sackbut (Thinks: Did he play in the Tittipu Town Band?)

The parchment was full of lacunae:
One incomplete phrase really drew me.
It fairly set me ablaze -
I just had to paraphrase
And the long-dead author can’t sue me!

Gee whiz, Commando, intellectual banter such as that is usually overheard only in downtown London.
I, a country girl, am impressed. smile
