Pretzel, Bavaria, Snack, Crispy, Vespers


Groceries in hand, and with all haste

I headed home – no time to waste

In fear of catching something rheumy

I’d just stay inside my homestead roomy

I hadn’t considered that my roomie

Would have thought to do the same as to me

So hoping to not go looney

I shoveled loads of snacks – into me

While pretzels helped the things I faced

They seem to all have gone to waist



Double Take

Use the following homophones in your writing:

rheumy – having a watery discharge of mucous
roomie – colloquialism for “roommate”
roomy – lots of space


waist – between ribs and hips
waste – make ill use of
