A Misunderstanding Of Misses
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.
🙂 Because you, like me, are hooked on mysteries?
Having had a mother who carried her love of Agatha Christie with her to America, I got an early start with Miss Terry. She’s a woman of many costumes.
I like, 🙂
