The best laid plans…

.













We expected a crowd to be forming,
With balloon sellers, cops, people swarming.
But down came the sleet,
We all got wet feet,
At the rally against global warming.

Thank you Tess for another thought provoking prompt.

  1. Wonderful poem, except for a missing t!

    And being a Taylor, that's important to me.

    1. I give in, where is the missing 't'?
      As a tea drinker, a missed t is a disaster!

  3. The missing t is on the end of wet feet. *smile* But even so, I enjoyed this one with its irony and play even in the midst of the seriousness.

  4. Great limerick again, Stafford. Maybe icy sleet counts as "warm" in Finland?

  5. My screen shows the mysterious 't' at the end of 'feet' to be there, but it seems it is missing on others! Very strange... maybe it is a line length problem. Anyway, there is nothing I can do about that, I guess. :-(

    1. Yes, I agree. Global Warming is a bit like blood pressure. We need an expert to diagnose it, but ignorance will not prevent it from killing us.
