Shivvery is not dead.




















She’s wearing his coat,
She has his umbrella.
What sort of a girl
would do that to her fella?

OK you poets out there, I have a challenge for you.
Write a concluding verse in lieu of a comment. Go on, do it.

Thank you Tess at Magpie Tales for another challenging prompt.

  1. He gave her his coat,
    Forget the umbrella,
    From the look of her legs
    He's one lucky fella!

    1. Thanks Carrie. Whenever I hear or see the name Stella I think of Spike Jones. If that makes no sense, you are too young to know...

  6. I have had my share of kisses in the rain. Am still awestruck - but I agree with Jinsky. So my line is for the girls who know what they want -

    One who is a go-getter!

    2. When I left Hobart, I was six years old, Stafford. But then again, I already had a mind of my own!

    And also divest him of those fancy braces?

  12. What the picture doesnt say

    1. Oops, I first read through I misread 'bailed'. Haha! No, you work it out.

  13. She didn't need his coat.
    That much was a lie.
    She wanted to say
    "Come in and get dry."

    Do I win a cigar?

    1. Thanks Doc, so it was a trick. She just wanted him to get so wet that he would agree to come home so she could have her way with him. He could do worse. You get the cigar but this is a non-smoking site. Sorry.

    2. Your first attempt that came through on my e-mail was mush more honest but nasty. In this one she has a sneaky streak. I am tempted to reinsert the other one!
      BTW, you are allowed two attempts (or more).

    What sort of a girl
    would do that to her fella?

    She's that sort of a gal
    Who will take all
    From her pal
    Cuz her name is Cinderella

    I know- it is kinda lame-
    It's the best I can do at this moment!
