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.

  1. 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.

Tell me something good...
