Mistress Mary had a skin so fair,
She wanted to see the town fair,
Could not but afford the fare.
She then made a move to prowl,
To catch the neighbor’s fowl,
Sold it to make money in a foul.
Written for Saturday Mix- Double Take in Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Description below.
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
fair – even-handed
fare – payment
foul – grossly offensive to the senses
fowl – domestic hen or rooster
