#MM Saturday Mix — Ride ’em, Cowgirl

Image result for woman riding old horse

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
Or to court for small claims; test your fate.


I went with a limerick, which has, per shadowpoetry.com, a set rhyme scheme of : a-a-b-b-a with a syllable structure of: 9-9-6-6-9.

Sarah Weejars is the host of Mindlovemisery Menagerie’s Saturday Mix.  Sarah says:
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
