Salvaging Live Ammunition, and in Bad Taste


Another Wordle (294) I missed, and I like the picture it created in my mind and the one (with the help of Wiki and Paint) I then created here.  I managed to add fewest possible words, but had to juggle a bit to keep the given words in order. 

I am also counting this towards GloPoWriMo.

Crane handle grab; strap in;

Trim slack; a single fault, here,

Can undo; winch in line and grin

Vent, as shell surfaces, a cheer!

And, on the GloPoWriMo prompt of ‘Taste’, a tasteful limerick:

How sad that foods delicious to the taste
Invariably go straight to the waist;
It would give much better luck
If those foodstuffs tasted yuck,
And got moved away from in the greatest haste.

If burgers tasted just like rancid oil,
And ice cream like green beans too long on boil,
Guarantee results would be
That we’d eat more healthily —
This, the urge towards obesity would foil.

Maybe taste-reversing might be worth a try;
If the salads tasted just like apple-pie,
And the apple-pie like lettuce,
It would break loose of the fetters
Of bad eating in the twinkling of an eye!
