Drow Semag


Any word scramble
     Is like dangl
                     -ing
A treat to bat
         and swing
For the claws of
         my intellect
       Simply
Irresist
          -ible

Written for the prompt "Games" at Poetry Jam  poetryjaam.blogspot.com
And thanks to my great poetic friend De for the inspiration to dangle my words :-)

  15. I really like how the dang
    -ling
    works

    Very fine read and don't know how I missed it, but, bad me, I do tend to do prompts and return to see if anyone has added anymore on the same day but by the next day tend to only go to people who have visited me and forget to go back to the prompt page to re-check. Glad I was caught by your unusual title :)
