Dastardly dactyls

My homework this week, a form called double dactyls (an explanation – http://lonestar.texas.net/~robison/dactyls.html).

It is not at all easy! My only completed one so far is…

Spitterly, spatterley
sweet Lady Chatterley
fancied her gamekeeper
though she be wed –
desperate, passionate,
aroused him,  seduced him-
made her own bed.
