Slipped (Gin) Fizz

That’s the biz
(all the buzz);
pour me a giggle-glug
and let’s muttermurmurmutter
our way to the kerplunk crunk
of phrase.

These days,
we all hoot and hum,
jangle thumbs at days and days
and days
of ding-dong ditches and flip
-flop flutter, life’s hard knocks
and tick-tock.

Throw in a can-do
and some waffle-wacked
wallop, too.

Cha-ching. Zing.


……………..(Ah, God bless you.)


Bjorn’s got a fun one over at dVerse today. In case you can’t tell, we’re playing with sound. Come on over!

    This was an absolute blast to read out loud — although I had to try a couple of times because I was laughing so much at the sound of your piece – I loved it!

    Gin Fizz – I remember having one of those once – Gin and I don’t agree – but, your poem was wonderful.

    Definitely one to read out loud, De, and the prompt was right up your street! Great fun!
