1014 - Shady Characters


Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: 

rebel, pluck, shady.


Shady Characters.

A rebel, well known for his pluck
Was assisted by the good Friar Tuck.
When asked if his robbing
Left the poor sheriff sobbing,
He replied "I really don’t give 
a lot of thought to that."
