An Exercise in StyleOctober's Mini-Series (couplet).

exercise in style 29



Queneau - French bloke, wrote a book, inspired me. I've explained it all here.

Day 29 Couplet.

There was once a man found collapsed in the snow
A blanket to warm, upon him we did throw

The police were called, they came pretty quick
Even though the snow it was thick.

The scene was confused, unclear and a mess
Why the uprooted roses, we could only guess.

The broken bottle shattered and strewn
Never met the glass, standing alone in the room.

On the table where a heart had been cleft

Charges were filed, then everyone left.
