One Red Rose…


Knelt down;

pulled out a red-rose;

expression of his puppy-love.

Snatched and tossed;

and out through the window;

whattay haughty dame, by jove!

For the passerby,

A sign;

Of luck from heaven above!

For Trifextra: Week 28th.The challenge as they put it:

On to Trifextra, where this weekend we’re borrowing from the musical world.  Noted blues musician, Lead Belly, was quoted in Three Uses of the Knife by David Mamet as saying:

You take a knife, you use it to cut the bread, so you’ll have strength to work; you use it to shave, so you’ll look nice for your lover; on discovering her with another, you use it to cut out her lying heart.

 Give us 33 words (exactly) that tell us three different uses for one object.    Tell us a story, like Lead Belly did, if you can. It won’t be easy, but you guys are far beyond needing easy prompts.
