THE S WORD: In collaboration with Jan Allison

I mustn’t write it in a poem                 
someone will moan if I do
It begins with s and ends in t
perhaps it’s a load of pooh

But if I inscribe it in a poem
someone may tell me to hush
It begins with s and ends in t
this dirty word I'd have to flush

If it's submitted in a poem    
some may think it'll burst a bubble
it begins with s and ends in t
and belongs in a pile of rubble

You can't overlook it in a poem
It's obvious when you see it
it begins with s and ends in t
One word that displays no wit

When I see it written in a poem
I balk. It makes me want to puke
It begins with s and ends in t
and is the reason for my rebuke


This "S" word may not be what you expect it to be, but was much more fun to collaborate on the ideas of what we know it to mean.  Thanks, Jan, for the inspiration.

Hello my Witty Warrior. Jan and I do seem to have a penchant for silliness, but we love it! Your words of wisdom are wily and welcome. Thanks ever so much, {*J*} ;-)

Now how on earth did I miss this one? I must have been distracted or in the bathroom or something. : )

We think you rock, too, Tom. I don't think we're going to divulge our word.

This S word is the depth of contention. You're always ready, willing, able and up to any challenge, chick.

I'm pretty sure Jan and I didn't expect this to become a guessing game, but it only adds to the fun. Thanks, Kim.
