Is indeed a shock
Remnants of its past fullness
Cling in memory to mock
The fault Lays with me
I cannot quibble
Once full bag of crisps now done
Thought I’d have a nibble
Lost the bet on that one
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Quadrille #145: Nibble
Tonight at the pub, Mish tends bar and gives us a a little something to nibble in a quadrille prompt.
I plead the fifth on whether the above poem is based on real or recent events.
A quadrille, is simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “nibble” or some form of the word in your poem.
Ha! I love it. Currently losing the bet on a bag of tortilla chips …
Well, this made me giggle! I have the same problem with crisps – easier not to buy them in the first place. I love your last line – so wry and dry and crisp (sorry!).
I know it… some food there is always all or nothing… I think they use something special to fool is to eat more than we want.
I agree, they must add something. Thanks Björn.
Well done! I think we’ve all been there. 😅
We’ve all been there and likely more than once. Thanks!
Just the right write for pub food 🙂
HAHAHA! You’re right. Thanks.
Haha! A big difference between the 1st and 2nd stanza! An ode to a packet o’ crisps, and I thought it was v funny how it went from what I thought was serious to legendary!
I do love to mislead when being silly. Thanks!
Hilarious! Laughing with my mouth full…
Careful now! Don’t choke! Thanks.
Raivenne, the bag is half full … of air. Such a fun poem 🙂
That’s what I tell myself too! 🤣🤣 Thanks Lisa.
🙂 You’re welcome.
Great contrast in stanzas to save the humour. My newest attempt is to put some in a bowl and stuff that bag in the cupboard…..really far……sometimes it works.
“Sometimes” 😂😂! Thank you.
I so can relate to this. Nicely done.
I bet a lot of us can, thanks.
Well who can resist that bag…smiles.
Thanks, not many apparently 😂.
I like lays too but I’m more of a Doritos man
To each their own vice, 😁. Thanks.
Don’t we always lose the bet on this one! Thanks for the smiles and chuckles.
Ha! Pretty much! You’re welcome.
Yep, we’ve all been there!
To our delicious chagrin. Thanks.
Ha! This is very relatable
😁 very much so. Thanks!
❤ Raivenne ❤ ~ Hilarious! and relatable!
Yup! Thanks, David.
Too irresistible! Lol.
🤣 Very much so!
I can’t count the number of times I’ve lost that bet. This bag of chips has never failed to make me want for more and more and more…till my parents get mad!
🤣🤣🤣 I agree with Björn, they sneak something in them that we just can’t help but to devour them!
I share from personal experience: Lays and TV are a lethal mix. Love your Quadrille.
Oh so so true! 🤣 Thanks!
I can so relate!! This is such a fun poem!
You’re in good company! Thanks.
Hehe. Relatable, this. Made me smile. That shock when you find the bag empty!
The fault Lays with me too. The pull is real.
Gets me every time.
Lovely poem. You rock. 👏 💕
They are irresistible! 😄 Thanks.
