The Pooky’s Poems prompt: ‘…write a poem in which the first letter of every line spells out the name of somebody you admire and the poem explains why you admire them.’
C onsider Really Awful Rhyme
O r Dreadful chunks of Prose;
L et’s face it, it would be a crime,
O n any scale one knows,
N ot to appreciate such skill,
I n epic verses shown,
A s this bold blogger always will
L et in his rhymes be known;
I n articles the writing shines;
S o, too, in story-telling lines,
T his author stands alone!
From a recent excursion:
To add to this modest effort, I am including my contribution to the Mad Kane limerick contest for the week, given the first line:
A woman broke up with her beau;
How low to go he didn’t know;
He’d too many doubts
On the ins and the outs,
So making her come was no go.
And my previously posted unpunctuated Really Awful Rhyme, but with punctuation:
Commas, dashes – and the like –
Can from here all be left out,
And ellipses take a hike …
Full stop right not left, no doubt.
There’s no place for slash/oblique —
Hey! No exclamation mark!
And apostrophes, don’t seek
(Brackets [square or round] don’t park).
Semicolons never show;
You’ll be shot; do not do so!
Must a question mark here go
With a colon? Answer: no.
He said punctuation stinks;
Commas none, inverted, came;
‘Ah yes; quote: “For as he thinks,
So he is”,’ response to same.
