Really Awfully Plastered and Monkey Got None

Wordle 253

In robes with tassel, see him creep

To climb the vine in chill of night;

Opes trap a crack; views those asleep

In diverse beds below in sight;

Mad light shines from his tawny eyes;

Non-lucid mind in drunken mist

Loose plaster ruins his surprise,

And so the nuns remain unkissed.

I enjoyed the process of getting the Wordle 253 words to paint a tense scene in rhyme, and then to throw in an anti-climax!

By the way, I got one of these to tell me I have been blogging with WP for six years. Amazing how time flies when one is having fun.
