Rhyming replies – now there’s a first!

July 26, 2013

There is a first time for everything and firsts need to be shared!

A recent invitation to the Exeter Business Network event on 7th August read……


What is it that I ask
Merely a simple task

Get your place booked
Don’t get overlooked

For opportunities will come to you

With you being at the do!

This is merely a rhyme

I’m conscious of time

Click your mouse on the link
And you’re guaranteed not only a drink

But conversations, seminar & lunch

With a truly tremendous bunch


and the reply I received from someone on the invitation list was


It may seem an easy task to you

But Mo’s not here – just me and you

You think a drink may tempt but No,

Mo’s not a drinker – but she may still go …

She’s back on Tuesday; I will pass this back for you

And – in case of interest – I’ve copied our boss in too

I hope that someone can attend your lunch

And join your sartorial & tremendous bunch.

Do you have a rhyme to add

It cannot possibly be as bad

As the line that began this chain

Go on, stake your claim!
