Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were abnormal, dangle and lavish.
Low Water Allotment
The hair is slicked and oozes Brylcream,
The smile is fixed and set on 'high-beam';
Cowboy boots, rubbed down with grease,
Designer jeans, ironed with a crease.
A gold chain dangling around his neck
And a mouth that can’t be kept in check.
A breath that scented with a musky spray
And the sense of a lion stalking its prey.
The brochure’s lavish, in weight and ink.
The photos designed to make you think
That the property that is his to show;
Is the best around and will quickly go;
That an abnormal bargain is close at hand
Should you purchase the offered land.
But you will learn, to your chagrin,
That it disappears when the tide is in.
