WordPress Poetry 201: Day 4

Hi folks,

I’m here today to share the poem from day four, of the current poetry challenge.   

Word:     Imperfect

Type:     Limerick

Tool:     Enjambment, a grammatical sentence that stretches from one line of the verse  to   the next.

I must admit I struggled with writing a limerick, it didn’t flow as naturally as I would like.  do have a couple of offerings though so here goes:

On a planet with wars to behold,

Plus running out of silver and gold,

The world is a mess,

Imperfect at best,

so make sure you have someone to hold!

This one felt a little too serious and lacked a poetical ‘punch line’, so I tried again:

Pat sat on a stool at a bar,

Thinking about the dents in her car,

In walked a man,

That drove a white van,

and said “Lady, it rolled really far!!”

Again, I wasn’t completely happy with this , so tried a third:

A world at peace would be good,

To fix an engine you look under the hood.

“If peace is desired,

should leaders be fired…

Out of a cannon to land in the mud!!”

This one I felt got the closest but I didn’t feel I had got in to the limerick writing zone 🙂

I hope this post has entertained you lol
