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
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.
The Road Runner
always almost a goner;
when attacked in manner dread,
Wile E. suffers intended fate instead…
Star Trek’s frowning Klingon Worf
challenges a squeamish metamorph
to eating a wormlike gagh dinner;
Worf of course was the winner!
M.A.S.H.’s best ringer,
in dress, heels and snear,
won “Kook of the Year.”
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!
