First Date Optimism

This week, the prompt words were doozies. It might help a bit to explain that the incredibly obscure word “demesne” (which is a piece of land one has sole title to) is pronounced to rhyme with “pain.” I’ll leave it up to you to determine the meaning of “whiffle” and “obfuscate” from the context in which they are used. Not my fault, folks. It was in the prompts!!!!!

First Date Optimism

You exaggerate the matter if you say I’m your demesne.
That untruthful statement is purely most insane.
What started out a whiffle, you’ve made into a gale
by weaving our first date into a fairytale.

But I must take exception to your bending of the truth.
You are not my Boaz and I am not your Ruth.
If you think I’ll marry you after our first date,
As I said in the beginning, I fear you obfuscate!!!


Prompt words for the day are obfuscate, except, whiffle, demesne . Image by Priscilla du Preez on Unsplash.

      I know. Haven’t had time to look to see what you did with it. The pronunciation was the tricky part if attempting to rhyme. Had to provide instructions..or put it in the middle of the sentence, but even then it would have an extra syllable if pronounced as it looks.

      I don’t think there have ever been three at once, though. There have been two, but I don’t remember three. Keeps the brain in training. There are constant rockets going off now and sounds like a parade because there is drumming. Too lazy to drive down and have a look.
