Flim Flam for Poefusion

Poefusion's Friday 5 offered these words: green, snug, snake, boggle, racket. This is a fun meme - feel free to join in...

I attempted my first limerick and came kind of close before I tried a tanka. Obviously, the daily news is getting to me and I couldn't get off topic which is usually easy for me.


**
head divider smirks
snug with his own folding green
forked tongue of this snake
spins out another racket ~
maroon's turned to a boggle



**
top twisted snake of the packet
so snug in a shameful racket
packs deep pockets with green
his forked tongue boggles me
he has earned a crooked jacket

I dislike politics so much I blocked that definition from my mind.. never thought of it.

I really like both of these and the use of the phrase "he has earned a crooked jacket."

I love the second one. And, the line he has earned a crooked jacket is my favorite. You've done a very nice job. Have a nice night.

Hello there,

You always find a most creative take on the words! Politics are frustrating- I can't claim to understand that sphere of life. We can only go with our feelings, as your poems here portray.
