HOMEWORK PROMPTS FOR WEEK ENDING 6TH SEPTEMBER 2021

Post by Maureen K Clifford » Mon Aug 16, 2021 4:20 pm

For all of our poets who might be in total lockdown - our thoughts are with you. But please just follow directions and the sooner every does that the sooner we can start to get back to a degree of the new normal that we all so desperately want. Please stay safe.

On the plus side perhaps you now have a little extra time to devote to your poetry writing :roll: In the interest of keeping our Aussie lingo alive, in all of its uniqueness and whimsy - let us see what you can manage to magic by using these old saying ..... as always use one or as many as you can.

Two snags short of a barbie

Dumb as a box of hammers :shock:

Lower than a snake's belly.

Useless as a chocolate teapot

You could ride to Bourke on that knife and never cut your bum :o

As useless as a hip pocket on a singlet.


Now this should be an interesting exercise - go to it my lovelies :lol:

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Good thinking Maureen

It's getting to the stage of, use it or lose it, as they say.

I think this forum is getting to be a bit like that as well!

Cheers
