Because this is what happens sometimes.

I tried to write this poem

and changed it way too much,

then counted all the syllables

and learned the rhythm sucks.


I used my thesaurus

upgraded all the words,

poetic justice don’t apply

this smells like walrus turds.


I flipped around the lines

dissected every meaning,

then took out this and that,

with mental veto screening.


This is the last stanza.

Won’t let my readers down.

So I’ll end this little ditty

Fade out til there’s no soun...

Hello Michael,

Bend the rules, you can. It's the content, not the form - just like a lady. This review is a year late but the poem still rocks...the graphics too.

This is cute! I gave up on trying to be a poet, I only write what I am feeling at any given moment. It's just my way of thinking aloud and putting things out there.

Thank you for sharing. Love and Warmth, Carin' Spirit

How I can relate and honestly say, "Been there, done that..." far too many times. The walrus turds references leaves quite the visual. I'm glad you were able to finish this poem and share it, though. The adorable nature of this was well worth the struggles to find the words!!!
Have a great night,
