Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés - Tails

Bouts Rimés means "rhymed ends" in French and is a game or challenge where one person (me) makes a list of rhymed words and others (you) write the lines that end with those rhymes, in the same order in which they were given. It was known as Crambo in English and was quite popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Will you help me bring back this hip historical habit?
 
 
Tails
Swing
Trip(s)
Slip(s)
Tales
Sing
 
 
Above are the words.
Get writing rhyme nerds!
There will be no winner. This is just for fun
and the joy of rhyming a smile for everyone.

  1. Tom and Jerry love their tails,
    and with a mallet, love to swing.
    On a fishing wire Tom will trip.
    Then a banana peel makes Jerry slip.
    Back and forth, so many tales,
    when their human leaves to sing.

  2. Wagging tails
    Lazily swing
    Until they trip
    Or cause a slip -
    The comic tales
    Then painfully sing.

    1. Great use of the words.
      IF you didn't choose these words to write just this rhyme, I'd be surprised. Such cool wordings and pairings.
