BrewNSpew Cafe – September 24, 2018


Word of the week – taradiddle/tarradiddle – (noun) – a trivial or childish lie; a fib; pretentious nonsense. Synonyms – fable, fabrication, fib, lie, mendacity, story, tale, whopper.

Oh, such petty fiddle-faddle

why make up such a taradiddle

no way tactical or practical

methinks such acts are theatrical

  a fanciful mind deems it classical

but for me, comme ci, comme ça

a zesty and comical fabrication

must offer a stunning presentation

to warrant a standing ovation

    I got your LinkedIn invite and accepted this morning. I’m glad you told me because I didn’t get a notification and I’m rarely on that site. I used your word for today to create a poem. 🙂 Thanks for inspiring and hosting such great creative fun!
