A Quadrille of Qs

Quiet all around
from the quarterdeck I spied
the quick quillback
I heard a quack
Saw a quark and a quist
quickly glide away

My phone camera rolled
but quonk querked the video
and it quit

The great Quarterback above
chuckled at my quest


I decided to have a little fun today with De Jackson’s call for Quadrilles including the work quick dVerse Poets Pub at today. There’s never been a “Q” word used for Quadrille Monday before, she says. So I took it up a notch and using http://www.wordhippo.com found as many words that began with Q and ended with K or T as I could.

  5. One of the best things about the great Quarterback is how he can change the play call to make it all turn out the way it should. Love this. Did you write it while watching football?
