Dung on a Rung

Surly Sally slipped and lost a flip flop at a hearty party in a bungalow with Billy. while dancing and prancing to hip hop whirling and twirling and spinning silly. Can you reverse and remember the flop she flipped? Well it ludicrously landed in the party punch bowl. Nobody noticed while they slurped and sipped and the dancers dipped and ripped and rolled. They dipped, danced, pranced and laughed, pirouetted, and sweated, tipped and turned till totally daft. Beer and booze abetted. The next night they stayed sober and soloed somber. Crashing and complaining Billy’s head hung, both believed they’d been belted by a bomber. Surly Sally swore she felt like dung on a rung! Let this be a lurid logical lesson, to those who think it’s only fun and frolick to abuse booze, Or you too could be confessin’ And for lack of the light of this litany you’re liable to lose! An answer to a challenge for John Freeman’s Alliteration contest by my poetry friend, Gwendolen Rix.

Well done, Robert, humorously written and quite a lesson indeed. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for your comments on my latest. I am doing ok, thanks for asking, although these times are a challenge for me, but such is life. Haven'twritten as much lately either. Have posted a few on facebook, especially haikus which I am learning, and find quite challenging if one wants to write them right. Hope all is well with you. Best wishes, Caroline.

Your delightful poem had me giggling, Rob. It's been so long since I've drank that I can't even remember what "dung on a rung" felt like. Poor Sally! Best wishes in John's contest. I think he'll really enjoy this, just as I did. Love, Carolyn
