Friday 55: Absinthe


My friend was seduced
by a green-bottled faery 
Great peril I deduced
And thus did not tarry

I snatched the bottle free
(How that faery howled!)
I cast her into the sea
My friend jut growled

I tried vainly to note
What I was wishing
He jumped into his boat
And said, “I’m going fishing!”

 
 


By the way, I couldn't help but notice what happened this week:
