Fix: quadrille #104

For d’Verse Poets Pub: https://dversepoets.com/ and De Jackson at https://dversepoets.com/author/whimsygizmo/

Maybe it’s me

If I thought about you  
 
And how I’d fix your ways  
 
I’d start with all my visions  
 
Of you these past few days.  
 
Were you even happy?  
 
Did you say some grace?  
 
Maybe it is me needs fixin’ 
 
Here around this cold, dark place.

  1. The situation portrayed in your quadrille is something that’s familiar to most of us, Christine. I like that it’s in the first person, directly addressing the ‘you’, but the reader feels as if they are the ‘you’! The rhyme and rhythm are very effective, like a mantra.

    A church has a rat problem

    The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

    Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

    Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

    Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

    man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

    music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.

    Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

    The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.

    The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.

    After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”

    The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

    RATS!
