Just to prove nicotine was harmless

11 of 12 given words:
enact meager spark day quarter nicotine fusion queasy
mealy (feeling rough and dry in your mouth)
parapraxis (thought to reveal unconscious wishes or attitudes)
scapegrace (a habitually unscrupulous person; scamp.)

What was there to enact
Perhaps not just some meager episode
Did you remember what they did?
Not the one that sparked things off!
Yes, that was the one

For a day and a quarter it was utter confusion
Just to prove nicotine was harmless
And nothing queasy about it but just
a mealy feeling in the mouth
They decided to put it to test

Not unlike a parapraxis but with a
wicked desire to cause mischief

They did not wish just to smoke a fag
But lighted up at a petrol station
That was their weird idea of fun
A fusion of a scapegrace and a nut
What a conflagration!

  1. "For a day and a quarter" I really like that

    Sounds like their mischief got way out of hand!


  2. Oh my goodness! Mischief causing mayhem--scary!

  3. An affair to remember - specially if you don;t want your house

  4. Some mischief is best left in the head as it can cause a whole lot of dread
