COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 132 #SYNONYMSONLY

I’m looking for a Christmas venue for our staff party which is proving to be more difficult than I first anticipated. A colleague at work suggested I considered The Cock pub. Anyway, to cut a long story short I called The Cock and checked the size of the venue. We require a big capacity  – over fifty guests – and I was informed that the venue was too small. Dead pan, I reported this back to my colleagues with the words: ‘the cock is too small!’

Cue much laughing… Oh my!

Thereafter, not content with the way things were going I googled other possible pubs and discovered a feisty possibility called The Wrestling Cocks. This wasn’t big enough but I was impressed by their passionate pride to their pub! They pointed us in the direction of another venue – the name escapes me – but sadly this didn’t meet my exalted expectations either…

So after much soul searching and a protracted period of titillating I’m now considering a more simple approach. Perhaps a venue with a numeral in the name such as The Three Buttes, or The Eight Ding-Dongs...

ALL PUBS NAMES IN ITALICS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT THEIR PRIVACY!

 

The pressure’s growing

To find a perfect venue

A decision soon

Be it big, or small in size

Carry on… up the pub dears!

 

Synonyms: For influence (I used pressure) and perception: (feeling)

  1. Oh! Marje that is just too funny! It is no fun organising works did, especially Christmas ones. Been there and done that!.
    I take it you did not get too much flak about the cost of the BBQ or else you would not be doing Christmas.
    Good luck Marje, you can do this. By the way love your Tanka.😆💜💜💜💜

    1. Thank you Willow. No I got a special thank you about the bbq as everyone enjoyed it so much. Glad you enjoyed the silly tanka! I enjoy organising events but it can be a bit stressful. Lol.
