Day 25 in the #NaPoWriMo Challenge

IMG_0607

Day 25’s optional prompt, is to write something short and just a bit (or a lot) silly – the Clerihew~ via The NaPoWriMo Website

These are rhymed, humorous quatrains involving a specific person’s name. You can write about celebrities, famous people from history, even your mom (hopefully she’s got a good name for rhyming with).

 

So with “Day 25’s Prompt” I have chosen an example in this Form of Poetry by the founder, Edmund Clerihew Bentley, and then Four examples from “Shadows of Poetry Website“.

Then after that I have posted a Poem I have recently written that is not in-line with todays prompt!

Happy reading and hope you all enjoy!

Sir Humphrey Davy

Abominated gravy.

He lived in the odium

Of having discovered sodium.

By Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956)

Four examples from “Shadows of Poetry” are:

*

Garfield the cat

On his rear he sat.

Eating lasagne galore.

Al about the décor.

James & Marie Summers (2000)

**

The Road Runner

always almost a goner;

when attacked in manner dread,

Wile E. suffers intended fate instead…

Alan McAlpine Douglas (2004)

***

Star Trek’s frowning Klingon Worf

challenges a squeamish metamorph

to eating a wormlike gagh dinner;

Worf of course was the winner!

Diana Dalton (2004)

****

Corporal Klinger,

M.A.S.H.’s best ringer,

in dress, heels and snear,

won “Kook of the Year.”

James Dean Chase (2004)

Trials and Tribulations

As I wake upon another day

I am faced yet again

With more trials and tribulations…

Why in this life: I am unsure,

Of what lessons are still to be learned…

But I’m letting go; looking forward,

And moving on now…

As I need to focus on the time I have left here

To be peaceful, happy and whole

Not weighed down by others

Selfish negativity & childish games!
