Too Many Misses

A Misunderstanding Of Misses

Girls with Camera Ractapopulous

Picture by ractapopilous

Miss B Gotten misbehaved
And by misadventure, had a close shave.

Miss Cue misconstrued Miss D Meanor’s mishandling,
A misconception misleading to misappropriate misgivings.

Miss Ann Thrope, who misspent her youth in misprinting in ink,
Later misused and mismanaged her mischievous wink.

Meanwhile, through a miscarriage of misguided justice
Miss Hap, by mischance, did mistakenly trust us.

Elsewhere, in Mississippi, Missouri, Miss Place mislaid her miscreant son
Who, mishearing, mistrusting, was misled and undone.

Lastly, if this miscellany of miserable misses upsets you,
remember the missing missals of the misogynist missionary.
Vanished in the monsoons because one and all were, alas, miscible.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen “miscible” in such a word play before; clever!

    Reminds me of an unfortunate episode in my dating years, when I kept misunderstanding Miss Terry. But that was so easy to do.
