“Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves.’ Now that’s an interesting one. It basically means to allow someone to accomplish his or her own downfall by his or her stupidity or pride.

“Throw me a rope” this one means help me out , throw me a rope as in a rescue, from a boat, burning building, or even to use during s climb. Those are the litteral meanings. Now it can also mean tell me what happened, throw me a rope and I can help you. Give me a clue of what you need and I will help. Or even show me some patience and I can help you or you can help me.

“At the end of my rope“, that litterally comes from dangling at the end of a rope being hung. But it can mean, to run out of patience, get very angry, be ready to go mad or have a nervous breakdown.

“Being roped into it”. Being tricked, cajoled or forced in to doing something you don’t want too, against your will!

Then there are rope bridges, rope soles on shoes, rope ladders and rope hanging basket holders.
“You can be roped off” like a section of a room, garden, street or even crime scene.

You could be feeling “ropey” or very ropey if you are ill or unwell.
Ropey” can also mean badly or shoddily made, like a ropey meal, dress, bag, house ect.

You can be “ropped in” mean being made to stop, having limits put on your quotas or boundaries , made to conform.

Now it looks like “I have run out of rope“, come to an abrupt end, no ideas left, no space left, run out of ideas, words, hope ect. So to end a short acrostic rope poem.


Rescue me
Oh! I am failing can’t you see.
Please throw me a rope
Everyone needs hope

I also want to wish those who not mothers by choice or not a happy day to . So a happy day to all women .

Seriously have a good day. I am a mum, a mother in law and grandma plus an honourary mum not forgetting I am a mum to a fur baby too. My family spoiled me yesterday in honour of today.

Sadly my mum and mother in law are no longer with me infact I lost my mum over twenty years ago. My mother was a gentle woman, loving and kind, her favourite flowers were Anemone, I have written a Nonet about her and her flowers because I miss her.

Always small yet colourful
Never over assuming
Elf like colour pools
Mother loved these flowers
Open bright and blooming
Nothing pleased her as these
Enchanting little Anemones.

My Mother in law was an amazing woman, she never let anything get in the way of what she wanted to do. She lived to one hundred, she beat cancer twice in her eighties and nineties! She died of Covid in 2020 a wonderful example to us all.

God bless mothers and non mother’s everywhere.
