We're to consider the unexpected at
Weekly Scriblings this Wednesday.
I had an unexpected midnight epiphany,
and peculiar rhyming words kept
popping into my head.  Forgive my
unexpected nonsense!

Tickle me a ditty
Any tick’ll  do
I’ll try to make it pretty
And make it rhyme too.

I’ll make it quite spectacular
A sight for all  to see
And in the vernacular
You’ll be pleased to a T

If you’re not particular
And you don’t mind the style
I can make it lenticular
At least for a while

I can make it quite jocular
We all need a smile
You called it cuticular
And missed by a mile

I’ll make it reticular
And you’d best hope I’m done
What’s left is testicular
And that’s not any fun.


  1. Hahahahahaha! Good job, Bev.

  2. LOL, this was fun to read. I kind of want it set to music too. There's a feel of a drinking song about it.

  3. OMG OMG ... this is hysterical! And made me giggle out loud. Nice rhyming.

  4. Hahahahaha I absolutely love this!!❤️

  5. A fun read until the last stanza. It made me a bit cautious ;)

  6. What a hilarious poem this is Bev...I laughed all the way through,
