I swear to you, I did not know
That it is now GloPoWriMo,
Where, so far, I have giv’n a go
For four times in unbroken row.
Hmm. Thirty pomes in thirty days?
But ‘one per day’ no rule down lays,
So what if catch-up now he plays,
And two or more per day can raise?
Well, five so far have all been done,
And more should be a lot of fun;
But brevity for every one
Should be the rule on which I run!
I believe my following comment in the CONNECT/HOOK blog post where I discovered GloPo was running should also qualify towards my tally:
But when to SA Dalai L would come,
The gov’ment quickly gives a down-turned thumb;
That China, ever faster,
Becomes their latest master
Is something that, to see, they’re far too dumb.
(This was in response to:
The immaculate Dalai of Lama
was revered as a modern Gautama.
While he discoursed, with mirth
upon karmic rebirth
he reminded us all of his mama.)
