A Really Awful Drawcard for Getting Rid of Seven Unwanted Politicians.

(Click on appropriate section of sidebar on right for translations, writings, compositions, awards and special series.)

The challenge for NaPoWriMo Day Twenty Three was to draw a card at random,  free-write for five minutes, and then compose a poem (a Really Awful Rhyme in my case) around the result.  I spent most of my five minutes in finding rhyming words, and then it fell into place.

 Seven of Spades

For finding a Jack of all trades,
Or Ace or a Queen or a King,
All hope very suddenly fades
When drawing and seeing the thing!

Emerging is Seven of Spades –
For giving some spade-fuls a fling;
Such shovels, in various grades,
Can set seven clods on the wing? 

Prefer to be one who persuades
Those clods – that we elsewhere would bring –
To push off by means of tirades,
Without digging-implement swing.

    it looks a breeze

    Can any politician be a Jack of any trade?
