The Mag 130

Tess Kincaid invites every one to join the fun at The Mag. Look at the picture prompt, write something, sign up.  How hard can that be?  Pretty difficult...give it a try.  It's lots of fun.

The lady arrived covered with kelp
carrying a shell phone to call for help
The first man she did meet
Tried to force a peek
What an impudent whelp!

I adore you! Tempt us all with a provocative image and then solve the problem by eliminating the nude completely! I love this piece. Good lesson. Well done.

We were in your area of Arkansas last week ---when it was over 100 degrees and VERY dry... The closest we got to Melbourne was Mountain View... The next time we come that way, maybe we can get together for lunch...

Hugs,
Betsy

Witty with clever wordplay. Shell phone sounds like Sean Connery's cellphone.
