  • I Could a Been a Poet

    “By Jove!” Said he, “I think I’ll write a poem;
    A verse of rhyme, ’twill be my great debut.”
    A sonnet then, a form that he could hone,
    With rhythm and with flow, and much ado.
    Its meter and its balance should concur,
    To punctuate, so phrases won’t collide,
    And maybe, too, a cunning metaphor;
    To obfuscate, where meanings like to hide.
    And tone is most important to its style,
    Hyperbole, they say, it is a must,
    And don’t forget the daggers in his smile,
    And lots, and lots, and lots of blood and lust.
    “Oh yes!” He cried. “A sonnet I’ll compose.”
    He pondered for a while - then picked his nose.

    Tony - This had me laughing all over. Anytime you can think, pick your nose and then write, you ARE a poet as is so stated on page 3, paragraph 4, line 7, sub-section 2 of the Poet's Operational Field Manual. Hallelujah! LOL. Most enjoyed. Namyh

      Hello Alexandra, Laughter, it is true, it is a great medicine and you can take as many spoonfuls as you like. Lovely to hear from you, Tony.

    I felt like I was getting a fantastic lesson on sonnets, and I grew concerned over the amount of blood and lust, and then giggled on the last line. =P

    A sonnet! Yes! A Sonnet! But of course!
    And a sonnet it is! What else would a poet write? Wonderfully funny, Tony!
