The Really Awful Ups and Downs of an Ambushed Fraudster

Wordle 261


Trustee was a crook: he’d chip funds from the trust,

Till he was found out, and then travel he must;

Before setting sail, this slime went back to burn

What might stand against him … ‘Stay! Bullet you’ll earn

If you move a muscle, abom’nable wretch!’

From up on a charge, he went down for a stretch.

    I’d have pulled the trigger . . . but then you would not have been able to finish the wordle.
