The Scrabble Beast

One day my pal Nancy 
Asked to play Scrabble with me
I’d never played before so thought
How difficult could this be?

It’s just some silly letters
Arranged to make some words
Any second grader could do this
Hell I’d even take on the nerds!

So Nancy and I placed down a wager
And started the intense game
Wow the words she compiled!
The Scrabble Beast was hard to tame

I used my seven free tiles
To construct the word ‘bequest’
She laughed and said, ‘that all you got’
The Scrabble Master not impressed

I tried to hang in there with her
But found her far too astute
No surprise about an hour later
She left will all my loot!


***FYI:  I love nerds :)  I would have used the more 'socially-acceptable' term 'geek' if it would have rhymed :)

    LOL, love it. Thanks for the vote, Natalie - I'm very flattered : ) I'm sure Andrea and I would love to travel with you in your beautiful new car! (I bet you're still grinning after that win! I know I would be). I have to confess that I don't understand most of the categories. But as for the travelling buddies, I'm already with you and Andrea - how much room in your car? Carolyn, Sara, Linda-Marie, Carol, Constance, PD, Joyce - oh so many, but your car would be overflowing by now, with some people on the roofrack, LOL. A very happy Thanksgiving to you, my friend : )

    Hahaha! I swear, Natailie, I believe you may have been the fly on the wall all those games that I won to my sisters' chagrin! And yeah, it's true, I'm a nerd, can't help it. Thanks so much for the fun write and for supporting my 'test! Happy day, namaste~N
