Personal Challenge Poem -- A limerick, "Bad day at the golf course"

.

Bad day at the golf course;
a limerick

Somebody had borrowed his wedge
Fine golfer he, chaos did edge
His keen direction had winged
Spoil his day, putter he flinged**
Subtle end, club's on his car ledge

I'm linked today with Real Toads, The Personal Challenge # 1 for 2014
My challenge was to use these ten words from D.H. Lawrence's The Song of a Man Who Came Through (I could have used only nine but I may have fudged on one [which?]):
*direction, *wedge, *chaos, *winged, *fine, *spoil, *borrowed, *subtle, *somebody, *keen *


**Note: Poet's license here, "flung" would be grammatically correct.  I also would have liked to use "spoilt" instead of "spoil" at the beginning of this same line.

Well done, and a really bad day on the golf course.

Have a fabulous day Jim. ☺
