bilby commented on the word abandannad
If you feel a bit lighter in ye olde Baghdad
Check your kameez 'cos you mightta been had
And wheel for a glimpse of a gilt-fingered cad:
Fruit-pluckin', scarf-suckin' Abanananad.
One of the few surviving quatrains.
If you're in Baghdad with a banana in your pocket -
maybe on your way to the souk to hock it -
beware Abanananad, faster than a rocket!
Keep that banana in a box! And lock it!
I see other fragments of the manuscript are remnant. Nice one yarb!
So much raw talent here on Wordie. We need to bottle it.
