Left Leg, Matterhorn Pose


Some streets sport water features
and some continue bare,
except for straggly grass, or weeds
that flourish unaware.
But here a paradox we see
for what looks like a fountain
is nothing but a metal plinth
for an Old Man of The Mountain
sporting naked chest and cap!
I dare you, gentlefolks, top that!

A bit of nonsense for Tess at The Mag,who provided us with the illustration today, and for which I've written a ditty as a late offering for IGWRT's Flash 55, as well.
Two for the price of one has to be good?

  6. In the heat of the day, I might sit in a fountain as well.
    I fear I would not get the same response though.

  8. To top the bare chest we have to go below the waist.. (and I will refrain from that)
