As the horse had a limp to his gait
Made me fall as I reached for the gate
As the horse from you leased
Pay med bills at the least

This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’. The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose. Our homophone sets this week are:
gait – manner of walking or running
gate – fence door
leased – rented
least – the minimum
