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