Oh Heck, It’s Been Windy This Christmas…

When choosing explosives, one stands out a mile
Though it’s never found in any missile.
While gunpowder, plastics are in with a shout
Nothing quite beats the humblest sprout
Which, combined with my gut is truly fissile.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I’m assuming the sprout has led to a quite isolated Christmas for you Geoff. I hope you’ve been working on something good.
    Hugs

    Jolly good!
    Sprouts deserve a shout –
    they’re nasty little green things –
    we can without!

    Happy, Healthy 2023 Geoff and family. Cheers Joy and family! xx

    MMMmmm sprouts with bacon – yummy! I also find the festive cheese board has its part to play in the Christmas trumping harmonies (especially when we had our four-legged companions around who were partial to a little cheese titbit). 🙂 Happy New Year. KL ❤

  9. As my family refers to them… little green balls of death! Even the cats hide in the basement when we have dined on sprouts! Still, here’s to a glorious, green New Year for one and all.
