In Other Words, Saint…


Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word Saint

He was no saint that was for sure.

A larrikin, a boy among men a worry to his mum.

But when disaster struck he was first there, lending a hand, doing his bit.

People marvelled at his resilience, his work ethic.

Later in the pub, with a few drinks under his belt, his old self reappeared.
