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,
