A Messy Separation

by Nick Gisburne

A messy separation
Drowned and dropped into the lake
His cheating ways perpetual
Those trendy trousers fake
She held him underneath until quite dead
Then launched him from the jetty by the head

6 random words, one little poem – messy, lake, perpetual, trousers, dead, launch. They were given to me in that order, so that’s how they appear in the poem. I cheated a little because the original list had ‘bath’ rather than ‘lake’, but I make the rules so I can break them!
