Twaddle Tongue

Diana Peach selected the image for this week’s photo prompt. It’s an image from, compliments of “Pretty sleepy.”

Scourge of the peaceful realm

Rascal knave garrulous

Armed with wit scurrilous

Have you no shame

Cease your verbal assaults

Turn full from yon door

Show your face, nevermore

Away with thee
