d’Verse Quadrille- Swift

A quadrille is a poem of 44 words, including the prompt word, or a variation of that prompt word. And the word I’ve chosen tonight is “swift”.

A city fella bought a jeep
Went to find a hill real steep

Miles from the lights and glow
Found a meadow filled with snow

A sudden pitch
A hidden ditch

The farmer found him in a drift
Them city fellas ain’t too swift.

    This made me laugh! Great use of vernacular here, and the rhyme scheme is lots of fun.

    Nice. Yours is the first I’ve read to use swift when speaking of intelligence level instead of quickness or a bird. It’s been a a while since I’ve heard that phrase.

      Much appreciated. I hadn’t realized how old I am until you reminded me of the outdated definition. lol 😉

    Ha… yes it’s not easy… you have to have both tools and skill, not just the money and will

Tell me something good...
