I border on being impressed…okay the die is cast and I’ve crossed that Rubicon
Oh, woe is me
doth Sarah say
a round about way
But enjoy it I did,
all that she said.
She can do one more
But not before
I love it!
On Happy Bad Poetry Day
Sarah A showed us the way
We know it doesn’t have to rhyme
To be bad each and every time
Our offerings in the comments section
Will probably be read I reckon
If anyone thinks that they are bad
We must agree as they are sad
Oh bravo! This is wonderfully bad.
God has not allowed me to become famous
lest I needlessly trample all over those less fortunate than myself;
like Margery Hansen who lives down the road
and Anita Gladsberry and … oh the list goes on and on – interminably.
I never realized until now just how unfortunate most people are,
yet poetry pours out of me like a gushing waterfall.
Yes! Yes! I’m glad I’m not famous;
otherwise I’d end up writing crap instead of stuff like this.
I’m certainly glad you don’t write crap.
Oh, once there was an old poetry trick
Traced to the Irish county of Limerick
Some are told and quite dandy
Becoming ear candy
But dull ones like this make me sick
A perfect contribution to Bad Poetry Day!
I have been trying to put aspects of the Gilgamesh story to memory and it’s historical significance. Wonderful poem! Thanks for sharing.
You’re too kind. Poetry is definitely not my best medium.
I used to write a lot of Poetry in my adolescence, but the passion hasn’t been rekindled.
I think your poem was really good here. Which poet/s give you inspiration?
I am in general awe of all poets and enjoy a few, but almost never feel inspired to write poetry myself. I do really appreciate Billie Collins.
I am a huge Robert Frost fan. What is your favourite poem by him?
Off hand I only know “The Road Less Traveled.” I’m sure I’ve read others, but it’s been a while.
Nice. I definitely recommend his ‘Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening’ and ‘Mending Wall’. We studied his poetry in secondary school and it left an indelible mark. There is an Aussie poet I really like too – Chris Wallace Crabbe. I wrote about his poem ‘Wet Ghost’ which is the bees-knees.
Oh, yes. I remember “Mending Wall.” It’s wonderful.
I’m glad you thought so too. I was walking between two rural towns in Colombia called Barichara and Guane and the whole time – all I thought was ‘Mending Wall’. It had that aesthetic in the 3 hour walk. It was something else.
I meant your favourite by Billie Collins earlier.
Oh! “Lanyard.” It’s adorable.
It’s very sweet and home-loving. The irony of ‘would be enough to make us even’. haha.
