TECHNICAL - TENACIOUSLY

Tenaciously, and with aplomb,
A sapper defused a large bomb.
His technical skill
And firmness of will
Caused watchers to mutter: "Quel homme!"

A questing knight errant's advance
Was checked when a griffin, by chance,
Appeared near a pit;
They grappled a bit,
Then the knight slew the beast with his lance.

A writer chap nearly got fired
For a paragraph more than inspired:
He’d a cuppa so tannic
It engendered near panic
In prose that was too hot for Wired.

CHROMOSOME – CIAO

Ick! I’m so rusty!

A rogue chromosome that I've got
Has made me a real xenoglot.
I'll be talking, then bingo!
Out comes some strange lingo,
Like 'ciao', 'entre nous', and such rot.

FRAGMENT - FROG




Me too, probably because we spend so much time on this site and others trying to master PIE.

Archaeologist posted his blog:
“Found a fragment of text in a bog.”
Years of stymied translation
Led to his revelation
That it’s really the corpse of a frog.

I try to bend spoons with my mind,
But people are often unkind:
"Your psychokinetic
Attempts are pathetic!"
I'm often belittled, I find.

An inn near the end of our travel
On byways of grass, mud and gravel
Served dry, tasteless ham
And sour greengage jam,
But we were too hungry to cavil.

A highwayman rode over plains
With his takings secured to the reins.
Reliant on speed,
He goaded his steed
Till it threw him and trampled his brains.

DIZZY - DODO
