This story told with tongue in cheek
to put a price on love divine,
is not the stuff for stomachs weak;
yet, gives us hope when life is bleak
and prods us o'er the battle line.


Dominique was in her antique-boutique on a peak in Mozambique
when daughter Monique said, “Fredericke, the Greek geek, my hand doth seek. Upon my cheek a kiss did sneak.”

Dominique with shriek did speak, “He's a freak! Critique his physique; the pipsqueak. I took a peek when he did leak. Alas! He lacks technique!”

Monique with infoseek of the mystique then asked her mother, Dominique, “Could use of Leek or Fenugreek from near the creek, tweak my lover's unique streak?”

“Oh, no my child. It's too oblique! Meek Mohel must we seek to pique the beak, so to speak.”

So Abraham with knife so sleek, within the room with floors of teak hid himself like hide and seek and upon lover did he sneak...


Poor Fredericke was last to know
the cost of love that he did seek.
Would he do this for any beau,
whose mother sought such change below?
He did and cried out, “Eek!” (For about a week)

Wow. What can I say? :) Eek indeed.

Very good and so creative.

Dr. Suess and Shakespeare locked up in a room. Very entertaining. I quite honestly enjoyed it, but I couldn't really say why other than I like quirky, I like poetry and I like the pace the feel of this. Great job.
God Bless.

Poetic fun that REALLY smarts! Good job.

Okay - this is the strangest thing I have ever read on FW.. very clever, very creative and definitely not boring. You mega captured the eek factor.
Could have titled it Sneep the Dreep though, just to cover all the bases. Fun read!

This is so great. Loved it from beginning to end, a real crack up. So creative and fun.

Hilarious! Wow, it must have taken a while just to list all the possible (and virtually impossible!) rhymes. Amazingly creative--magnifique!
