I saw you push her in the drink!
So quick I didn't have time to blink!
No! It was you! I'm glad you came!
Now someone else can take the blame!


Seen in a Charity Shop

Bric-a-brac and throw-aways no-one ever mentions,
No longer feel too sorry for themselves.
For they've been set-out tastefully, with artistic intentions,
Ready to grace other peoples' shelves.
All this lemon loveliness, seemingly respected,
Laid out on a table with good grace.
And even their own table-top hasn't been neglected!
See a cloth of decorative lace!
They thought they were discarded, to be thrown out in the bin,
Labelled with that awful 'second-hand',
But now they are co-ordinated, once more they can win!
For the second time in life they're feeling grand!

Ah! It's murder mystery time and how perfect to have someone else to blame! Great one for the day, Brenda! Hope you have lovely week!

Ooh, we have a liar, liar, pants on fire character here. What a schemer. Love it, as always!

Maude Lynn said...

Peggy said...

You are so good with the MF's.
I love to read your rhymes!
Have a nice week.

Ooh, a sneaky take on the Microfiction prompt, Brenda. The plot thickens!
When I saw your charity shop photo, I thought someone had given these lemons a lot of thought, too. Someone is sure to see a treasure in there.

Very good on the rhymes, Brenda! :)

I'm wondering why neither of them is trying to fish her out of the drink?

This reads like one of those intro pages in a delightfully macabre "Who Dunnit?", that you just know you're not going to be able to put down!
