I am always very grateful to my good friend, Esther, for her regular challenges which she bases on one-word prompts. On Mondays, the challenge is Laughing Along With A Limerick. On Thursdays, the challenge is Can You Tell A Story In . . . [five words].
Today, I am particularly grateful to Esther, because her prompt set me up beautifully to not only meet her challenge but to write a rhyme that could not be any more topical in UK current affairs.
Her word of the day is PET.
Larry is a fearsome pet. Four household tenants, he’s already ate. Rishi’s his fifth. Who’ll be his sixth? Well that, dear reader, is anyone’s bet!
