Stream of Consciousness Saturday – ode

An ode to the toad with the node

A toad sings an ode to his node

The node is embarrassed and falls off.


Okay, think of something else …


My abode has a lodestone inside

But I need to solve the code to enter

And I’ve forgotten the numbers


There once was a store called Mode

It sold second-hand clothes for an ode

But I’ve got a tin ear so was out of luck


And that’s all I’ve got for today … Hope your weekend is fun!


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
