Whacky Wednesday goes Deviant

Over at 3-word Wednesdays, three words are tossed out like mullet from a shrimp boat onto the dock and our role is to catch them and shape them into some creative mess of words which include the three words tossed out first. To keep it short, I'm following Tony Noland's method of a short, not quite serious, poem. Given that my genre is mystery, it follows that mine has a bit of murder or mayhem, or maybe even a sociopath or two in it. Enjoy!

Don't call me Trivial
There once was a man with a tool
That a lass labeled cute yet miniscule.
A deviant he become--
A murderous scum
--And off with her head went the fool.

The three words? Deviant, miniscule, and trivial. Yeah, I cheated with the title. The alarm clock went off. And the lesson for today? Sometimes you just have to do it.

Followed you home. Just as well I had finished my cup of tea or I would have snorted it across the keyboard.
A very accurate limerick too.

Thanks, guys. I aim for humor, especially if its dark or usually considered best left unsaid. "Say it! Spray it!" Appreciate the comments.
