Hey, the Tuesday Chatter Cafe is humming with chatter! Join me at the cafe where the world is muted at eleventy o’clock. Enjoy your cuppa as we chat about backward apostrophes, upside down commas, and dwell on ideas that are pure twaddle.

The faceless clock at two, four, six
Let’s zero in on those pick up stix
Are they in between or in betwixt
Best to run the shortest dance
Or you’ll be taking a risky chance
Best to avoid that same old song
Ticking all boxes may be wrong
Oh splish splash my eyelash crashed
A fake ATM ran out of cash
Hey, it’s not what you reap but how you sow
I got my $200 and didn’t pass go
We remain young if our song’s unsung
Have we lost our wits through thicknthin
Say the hoi polloi there’s no echos let in
