Pity Party

Party of one?

Right this way,

would you like wine or cheese

with your entre?

How about a dish of self-pity

or a quick pick-me-up drink of woe is me?

 

Here the check,

please don't groan or mope over the price.

We don't allow whiners;

heed the sign.

Just thought that there is a contradiction in a "pity party" without whiners :-)

Nice one Wistful P, I'm up for a whine if not cheese ha ha. Pithy piece to the point and with adept humour.

[/Party of one? - don't think you want this open bracket typo.
