Let-Down


SUCCINCTLY YOURS
A story in 140 characters.

LET-DOWN

They met on line and made a date
He started to anticipate.
When he saw her from afar
He quickly drove off in his car!
Those shoes!
Bad news!

S&P downgrades France, eight other euro zone nations

NEWS FLASH
POORER AND POORER

They're all losing their Triple A's
And surely they'll all lose more.
The name itself is a worry!
Surely the Standard is Poor!

Both wonderful poetic succinct comments, particularly about the S & P!

We were really on the same page with this week's photo, but your rhyme takes the prize for sure. Nice one.

Your "Let-Down" was perfect! One of my elementary school teacher's most solid advice was, "You can always tell a person by the shoes on their feet." (Thank you, Sister Louis de Montfort!)
