Where do the Russian peasants go
When the Scrabble board comes out?
They’d be the only ones to know,
What the word “Muzjiks” is all about.
The total on those tiles comes to twenty-nine,
And playing them all at once would be your onus.
To play all seven makes you feel so fine,
And one twenty-eight will be your bonus.
If you were the first there’s even more,
An extra fifty points you can add.
This will help to increase your score,
And nothing about that can feel bad.
If you’ve lined them up just right,
The K tile will score double.
They will say you’re on fire tonight,
And the extra five will save you trouble.
Now I’d say that’s a pretty good start
Your score is two hundred and twelve.
Be careful not to act too smart
Or the Scrabble game might be shelved.
