Four Lines That Rhyme

Quick quatrains with a rhyme scheme.

Slaughterer in the Water

Submitted by Janine on 08 June 2020 at 20:37

Action seen in Bristol
Is truly unforgettable
Poor old Slaver Colston
No longer on his pedestal

Colston was a slaver,
A taker not a giver
Protesters did a favour
Now Colston's in the river

We can't go to the boozer
We can't go to the barber
But we can tear that slaver down
And chuck him in the harbour

Four quatrains inspired by The People vs PFI conference on 1 November 2014:

I

PPP is Public-Private
Partnership - but how?
The same way steak's a partnership
Of a butcher and a cow.

II

PFI is Private Finance
Initiative, but still there's
One more thing that it stands for:
Profiting From Illness
