metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: RETRO-sir-tin-OTT

Sentence: She pleaded with him to come over at once- He knocked on her door till he felt like a dunce! In the dark and the rain he had driven cross town- This was the last time that he’d play the clown! Out of his trunk came a real pay-backer.... The largest yet legal immense firecracker. Out in her courtyard the ten-minute fuse- Sizzled like anger fueled by abuse. Back at his pad he had pause there to enter- He couldn’t retrieve the love note that he’d sent her... The night sky lit up like the coming of day- The concussion was felt a half mile away. Community service completed at last, He’d always reflect on his foolish young past... Was it allwrong –just a misguided thought? Or was it a bad RETROCERTAINOT?
