Tossing off for the Lady!


In response to Kristian – Tales of the mind of Kristian “The Word of The Day Challenge[s]

I did a few to catch up  …

Tossing off for the Lady!

Ah bad luck, Jock me old mate,
It’s just one of those things, you know?
Some days are just plain cruel, but it’s not too late!
You’re in, you still qualify for another free go!
Aye, that l do! You’re right…
…. This time I’ll toss it high!
Show that lass what one looks like in full flight!
That’s what’ll do, award her my best Highland Cry!

Now concentrate Jock, tune into the zone,
Become one with your timber,
Make your wood count, give it some backbone,
But do be mindful of your sphincter!
Show her, that you too can flirt,
With your mightiest of caber gestures!
Make it land square and plough the dirt,

So, she can truly appreciate the real pleasure,
…and not mistake your wishful thinking,
Or endless wellbeing, for anything other,
Than what it is …. Winning!
Show her you’re no bluffer!
Get it right this time Jock me lad,
Throw it higher than ever before,
So she can see that you aint half bad,

Impress her well Jock,
With your ability to toss off your caber,
Show the judge, you’re from quality Highland stock!
…. And you know what to do with your mighty sabre!
That you are atop of your clan’s hierarchy,
Not just any ordinary knit witted lobber,
But way above the minority parties,
For you Jock are a proud Highland Tosser!

  1. I’m impressed that you worked all those words in.

    Its interesting how different cultures have different traditional competitions. To think about the historical circumstances that brought about these activities.

  2. I was wondering where this was heading after reading the first few lines then I realised! Go on lad!

  3. Brilliant. I have to say though, that the Word of the Day isn’t entirely my challenge. I take it in turns with Dee Kelly of Thriving not Surviving and also Cyranny of Cyranny’s cove. It’s a collaborative effort. 🙂

    1. Admittedly l didn’t know it was a threesome – perhaps displaying the three links so that all teamsters get credit could be considered? 🙂
