Abecedarium of Demise: The Letter I



Impecunious Ira had importune thoughts unraveling
when he saw the King's treasurer set upon the road a-traveling



He meant to take an inconspicuous bit from the cargo with which he was laden.
Now irresponsible Ira is impaled in the iron maiden.

Silly Ira, he should have known better! Your imagination continues to amaze me. You should do a book using your Alphabe Thursday posts! Kathy

Julie. I so agree with everyone. These need to be made into book form. I would buy one.

Shutterfly or Blurb. Put me down for one.

Julie, Julie.

You are amazing.
