Mantuffit

I went to the land of Mantuffit
Where their motto is "can you bring it?"
All the guys were really buff
Yet I wasn't very tough
Still they couldn't toss me out of Mantuffit 

I don't really know the answer
Perhaps it's because I'm a writer
I have the sting of bee
My words pack a punch like Ali
Like him light on my feet like a dancer


So I guess in the end I brought it
I mesmerized them with a sonnet
I brought them all to tears
They all cried in their Beers
In the end there was no more Mantuffit

    :) :) :) :) .........best line??? Absolute best? I mesmerized them with a sonnet.... :) Hmmmmm...sonnet just because you couldn't get anything to rhym with teraznelle? Oh...bell...hell....swell....tell...spell...........Richard. SPELL...Ok..for the two 5 syllable lines...leave the sonnet there...Then a terazanelle...It cast quite a spell...and off to the ending line? I'm just being a TEASE! Great write!

    Be sure to edit "mesmerized". :) This was a fun writing! You won with wit & Limerick/Sonnet charm aka The Lamoureux Uppercut. ;-)

    Thanks again, I tend not to think about spelling when I'm writing and often have to come back and check so you have been most helpful. Also enjoyed your humorous comment.
