(Poem 13 – Unlucky) 25 Poems in 24 Hours


Poem 13 – 12:00 16-05-2017



Unluckily, it was midday

On the middle day

Of May.

“Unluckily?” you say.

I do –

And, anyway, who are you?

That asks me questions 

Whist I am writing my rhymes?

“I am your poetic conscience!” replied the voice.

“I give you unasked for advice

When you least want it – isn’t that nice?”

No, I snorted

I am quite capable to words have my sorted!

“Obviously!” quoth the voice.

“Your order is choice; 

But, sadly, your meaning is distorted.”
Hurumph! I thought

And wrote;

And that ought to have been enough…

But, it doesn’t work like that…
What is the World coming to

When your inner voice

Thinks you’re a prat?
