GRAIN – GRANT

There was an old mill by a lane,
Which processed small volumes of grain.
The miller, called Grant,
Would not buy new plant,
Though the mill cost a lot to maintain.

The field marshal's dreamy and practical,
Wages wars both strategic and tactical.
His battle groups pour
'Cross the living room floor
In wars minuscule and galactical.

QUEEN - QUICK

The King might be quick with a pen
But the Queen's even better, as when
She wrote fables about
Humpty's sad turnabout
Despite the King's horses and men.

Tending bar was his main livelihood,
Pop psychiatrist who understood.
Folks with nothing to lose
Came to tipple and schmooze.
Lousy wages, but tips rather good.

If your livelihood wholly depends
On the seasonal rain that descends,
You're sure to lose sleep
And plaintively weep
If a long summer dry spell extends.

Oops — Tromboniator beat me to it!

ESCAPEMENT – ESTATE

My priceless watch broke its escapement
When it fell from its niche in the basement.
I don't need to relate
How I trashed my Estate
By not knowing what "Double-Stick-Tape" meant.

(needs work, but better than silence...)

As the fight reached a furious pitch,
A pikeman stood close to a ditch
And dealt a hard blow
To a friend or a foe;
The fog made it hard to tell which.

The tour guide said: "Folks here are tribal –
They fight about words in the Bible.
If you cast an aspersion
On one group's pet version,
They'll probably sue you for libel".

A mid-fourteenth-century farm
In France was at risk of great harm;
The slaughter of cattle
In Anglo-French battle
Caused many poor peasants alarm.
