943 - Talking Point

Poet’s United Mid-Week Motif: Conversation.

Talking Point

“Conversation, like certain portions of the anatomy, 
always runs more smoothly when lubricated.” 
― Marquis de Sade

While the Marquis raised a wry snicker,
Conversation increases with liquor.
And as the Romans opine
There’s truth in that wine
So you get to the climax much quicker.

  1. Candy's dandy
    But liquor's quicker.

  2. Quicker, but gaining neither in substance nor pleasure.

  3. You sure booze was the lubricant de Sade had in mind and not... blood?!

  4. funny that wine makes a limerick about wine funnier.
    well done

  5. I felt I was reading this in the shed at the bottom of the garden.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
