Wednesday #Poetry: Banter, Fumble, Glance

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

Today's words are Banter, Fumble, Glance.

I'm smooth, with a good line of banter,
My words would please and entrance her;
But if you should glance
At what I call "dance"?
That fumble looks more like a canter.

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


  1. Hehehehe!! Very enjoyable. Love your limericks!!

  2. Such a fun limerick sounding so refined and becoming quite "Charlie Chaplin"! Loved it!

  3. There's nothing that beats a good limerick.

    Good fun, Tony. Impressive use of the three words.

  4. LOL. Guys should know, dance is the ultimate test. Not how good, but if a guy will do it at all.

    Great use of three words. Please come see my three words

  5. Hilarious! Of course, like beauty, dancing is in the eye of the beholder.

  6. Yes the prompts gave me the same inspiration. Very amusing.

  7. Canters can be fun! I like the lighthearted feel you have here. I love people that can laugh at themselves, especially if they can do it poetically.

    I finally got my 3WW/#FridayFlash here.

  8. Cute and fun. I really like the line "My words would please and entrance her."

  9. Loved this limerick! Reminds me of how my husband thinks he dances, so I have allowed him to "opt out" on dance floors. Nice twist on the prompt! Amy
