Green Female and Blackmail

Wordle 291

Not easy to make any sense out of using all the words in the given order, while also creating a rhyme, this week!


In green ball gown she rings the bell;

After admittance, a penguin-suited

Waiter will lead her in, as well

As furnish drink-tray with glasses fluted;

To festive board she goes, but eats,

In talk, no more than what a mouse would bag;

Men the orange to suck for sweets —

She has their secrets taped on disk, the hag!

    Well, Col, your entry makes more sense than mine this week! 😀 In order once again (I did try that this week, but failed…)

      I was forced to get a bit long-winded to make them work, this time. The hardest thing was arriving at a narrative to facilitate the use of all of them, never mind in order!

    I am glad you have fun when you write as you have clearly done with this poem.

    Particularly engaging and entertaining wordle, the sense unforced, the images strong. You are spoiling us, ambassador.
