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.
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.
