My Friend

Pavonine says this friend of mine
And thinks she’ll trip me
Defeat me
Mute my words and numb my hand
Ha! Little does she know me.
No country mouse me
No shrinking violet
No parson’s daughter
No penitent whore
No better behaved
Not knowing better than I ought-ta
(Not sure of that line
Neither sure of that friend of mine)
Calling all you Beau Brummels
Who deck your lordships up to the gunnels
Pavonines, bow to this friend of mine

    Well done, a difficult prompt this week but you nailed it.


  4. I really like this, your bracketed ‘thought’ is brilliant! A perfect way in which to use this rather odd word.

    My 81 words!
