Six Simpering Thick-skinned Shifty Spinster Sisters

Six simpering thick-skinned shifty spinster sisters stiffly sit
Stitching sticky skid-marked scivvies of sixty sick stingy sailors.
Six sick from stitching scivvies of sixty sick scrimping sailors
Stickle over nickels; those insistent six thick-skinned spinster tailors!

For "the alliteration, nothing but sweet alliteration (must have alliteration in the title)"Poetry Contest of Nathan D

    clever poem is this, and a joy to read, yes i read aloud and got there, the word nickels on the last line saved me, from losing it.

    Nope I didn't place in the tongue twister contest either. I guess different people find different things difficult to say. I read many of the winners without any problems, this one I must say is quite tricky - I didn't make it throught the first time.

    Andrea Yay we are back in PS! I miss everybody. Opps sorry I did have a mistake when I recited it! Clever work Andrea. It seems forever for the website to come back, but here we go again! By the way where is your reservoir of witty ideas? I wish I could be infected if I go dive and swim in that reservoir! Dalila Dalila Dalila
