My NPD Poem Effort

My NPD Poem Effort- ‘On National Poetry Day’

On National Poetry Day

I hope to be able

to read my best…

poem;

better than the rest…

poem;

that I wrote a while ago.

It needs a bit of work,

which I shall not shirk.

I know, that it will be difficult –

if not impossible –

to better the best;

but, I do believe

that the best can be bested;

at the least, I shall be tested – maybe arrested – probably not –

then, if I do get my my muse truly interested,

I can be sure that the time invested

in decomposing

then recomposing my rhyme

will be worth the effort.

But, you know me…

“Truth” (for #NPD)

(NB best to ‘rap’ this one- G:))

I never lie

and that’s the truth;

and if you catch me in a fib

well, I’m gonna need proof

that it wasn’t just a tale from my writing nib;

and if I get away with it,

it’s because I’m glib.

The Way of the Word

It is the way of the word
To infuse, confuse and abuse
My mind.

I grasp at it
Then it’s slipped away
This happens a lot each day

I think I have it
And then find out
It’s not ‘the’ word
But ‘a’ word
One of billions
All needles
In haystacks.

FaceBook Status Poem

Paul Bickmore has suggested our statuses should rhyme;
And, as it’s National Poetry Day, it won’t be a crime;
So hone up your efforts, make them sublime;
Write them soon, we haven’t much time;
Polish them up, don’t give out the grime;
And wish them good luck, or even “L’chaim!”
And give us a poem that is into its prime;
And if it’s ‘very’ good we’ll preserve it, not in quicksand, but lime;
And if it’s really ‘bad’ we’ll recite it in mime!
