Just playing with words - Amazing things, words.
Party people's peers proclaim
Fete's frivolities aflame
Country cousins coyly came
'Shabby Sheilas', shy with shame
With gorgeous girls all gaily game
A daintily dimpled dancing dame
'gainst fiery frieze she flirts with fame
She's known by nature not by name
Sultry singles seek the same
Tawdry tenors, truly tame
All black hair blue eyes bearing blame
For crudely crashing champions claim
Whilst cackling call-girls overcame
Discord with dainty dancing dame
The lily-livered louts were lame
And burdened beasts lay brutal blame
With dirty dialect to defame
The bullies brought about their aim
To make their mark and mostly maim
A great gavotte to end the game
This shindig's shine has turned to shame
Cousins call the cops and claim
The tawdry tenors 'not so tame'!
Surly sergeant says the same.
'Shabby Sheilas' = another way of saying people of a lower profile.
Gavotte = dance

|Clever and fun, Ruan; I love playing with words. Coincidentally, I have a poem posted here at AD entitled, "A Litter Ration" which is much along the same lines as yours. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,
