A play I saw in London was in rhyme
So you get an iambic post this time.
La Bête employs Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame
And Lumley who from Ab Fab earned acclaim.
I can’t list every cast member right now —
I tossed the program after final bow.
At least I do recall the plot about
An acting troupe forced to accept a lout.
Stupidity’s triumph was no surprise
To me, thanks to my many corporate lives.

To Chiswick House I’d traveled hours before
With friends in car and poodle on the floor.
Here’s Al with Caroline and Al’s brown dog.
(That yellow lab’s a random camera hog.)

With jeans and tee a great look wasn’t made,
But, bitches, dig my brand-new Prada shades!

What Wendy Wore:
Jacket: Alexander McQueen (2003)
T-shirt: Splendid
Jeans: Acne
Shoes: Michael Kors clogs (pre-2005)
Bag: Sonia Rykiel (2009)
Sunglasses: Prada (2010. Belated birthday gift from Mom)

Thanks to MrB for the feedback on my versification and to BarbaraB for the gift of the sunglasses.

    Love the random camera hog Lab and the Prada shades! I’m glad you went for the iambic pentameter post–I haven’t seen anything in iambic pentameter since my school days spent studying Shakespearean sonnets.

  12. And here I was wondering what the heck you were doing when you tweeted about sonnets and rhyming verses last night!
