A bit of nonsense for the Poetry Bus.

I'm a bit early with this actually, but as a busy weekend looms I thought I'd post it now. Our task this time was to collect those weird and wonderful word verifications and create a poem around them. I've typed my words in capitals but don't think there is much doubt as to which they are. Here goes:

I came downstairs this morning -
ate my bowl of healthy SKAIN
then grabbed my lightweight LARIACK
and headed for the train.

It was a busy morning
and there was much to do -
a quick DOOMATTI for my lunch
then I worked on, right through.

SOLTU, SHEMM and CARCL
are very well EPLECT.
I've worked for them for many years -
they all have my respect.

All three are so JOUTOLLY
and very RATIONE.
I think SOLTU is an EXPOLE
and mad on rigatoni.

The other two are slightly VOCYTH -
PRUCE and ANARIM.
Quite SADLOLIK in many ways,
but very far from dim.

The motto of their firm is
COUCK ARMEMPER DISTR PHISSES,
which very roughly translates as
'What a load of rubbish this is'!

Priceless, especially that last verse! I love how these nonsense words can so easily carry meaning when set in context: lariak - I'm pretty sure I had one of those with a hood, years ago.

Heather, you are seriously going from strength to strength. This is marvellous. The "Latin" motto stanza is fantastic - great idea.
Loved it all.

This is so funny Heather. Thank you too for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog. I do reply to as many as possible by email but I have a sneaky feeling my replies don't reach you. I hope you've managed your 10 minutes of sketching today!

How do you do it, Heather? So funny it was almost like listening to the British policeman in Allo, Allo, but not quite so pronounceable, Thanks for the laugh.
