P gets puzzled
P sat down to pen his verse
For a post on a one word prompt;
He scratched his head, he pulled his ears
But was left totally whomped.
He broke the word without a wrench:
The first three letters stood for cheat;
The next two, the UN or ‘one’ in french;
The last four formed something one could beat.
Confused what the word really meant,
P wondered how one could be so dumb
To scam a UN percussion instrument;
It was such a conUNdrum!
