This is a variation on "what's the next line", but in this game, you give the first line and the next person has to make up the the follow-on line. For instance, the first person might give:

"I must go down to sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky"


and the next person would finish it off with their own composition, eg

"And all I ask is a luxury yacht, and hope that pigs might fly" biggrin.gif




So I'll give another line, for someone to compose a suitable follow-on. And then that person will give another line from a poem for someone else to finish off wink.gif




I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

and all the while, as i did stroll, i popped my little rounded pills.

i think i could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contained,

Except when defending their patch of turf, then it's likely that you'll get maimed.

Entirely accidental, but very apt biggrin.gif.

Do you have the time to listen to me whine about nothing and everything all at once?

Or alternatively, given your thyroid problem, would a winter's day might be more appropriate?
