Wednesday Poetry: Affinity, Fidget, Mention

Welcome to my regular Wednesday poetry corner, brought to you by Three Word Wednesday and One Shot Wednesday.

Today's words are affinity, fidget, mention.

With strong drink I have an affinity;
To mention this strange consanguinity
Might cause you to fidget,
For I am a midget
One shot and I'm off to infinity!

Heh, heh... "one shot"... did you see that, Leslie? "One shot" - get it? Oh, I crack myself up sometimes.

Listen to me read it (it's only 12 seconds, and it's funny):


===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. Yup, it was funny- listening to you reading it.:)

  2. If only it did only take 'one shot' should have a radio slot! Jae ;)

  3. Just when I thought it was safe to take a drink of coffee... I come here, I read this and the coffee goes flying out right between my lips. Thanks, Tony. Thanks a lot - you're too skilled for my own good, lol.
