Q would be said like Kew;
     one also takes the cue
Queue is in line as well –
Quite silly way to spell!
Quit standing in one, you,
     to shop or go to loo –
Queer ways in which to dwell;
Quash thoughts of it pell-mell! 

Qi one would form from Q,
     a Scrabble game to do –
Quickest, one can tell,
Quiescent Q to sell –
Query’ng that, one would rue:
     Greek letter twenty-two!
Qat, also, one can gel:
Quick choice, sound as a bell,
Quote: ‘… shrub … white blooms’ (not blue);
     ‘narcotic leaves’ has, too!

    Excellent. My MIL loves that “Qat” when she’s playing scrabble. She didn’t know what it meant, so we looked it up. I remember that it’s something like tobacco leaves which can be chewed, or made into tea.

    Quite stunning as always Col! 🙂


  4. Great stuff, Col – really enjoying these. And LOVE the scrabble board.

    One query: what is qat?


    • colonialist says:

      Qat is the alternative spelling of khat which, as I have tried to describe in rhyme is a white-flowered shrub found mainly in Africa which has leaves with narcotic qualities.
