NaPoWriMo DAY 20: TODAY’S PROMPT IS write a poem that uses at least five of the following words: THERE FOLLOWED A LIST OF 30 WORDS! HERE GOES.
The elusive cowbird was full of herself importance,
Sitting on the branch of the willowy tree
Squandering her time trilling a rodomtade
Of her life with a sweet melody.
Upwind on the beach struggling through the seaweed
The quahog, felt his ears burn for the cowbird was singing his song.
The words were an echo of past time and a fair deed
Unlike today where everything is so painfully wrong.
The beach started bouncing, what could it mean
It was the dunderhead cyclops stomping on to the scene.
Up in the gutter of a nearby beach hut the mercurial Owl was lurking.
He had his eye on quahog for lunch but the cyclops that way was lurching.
So grabbing some truffles he had saved from his petit déjeuner
He laid a trail of them and some salt to lure the cyclops away.
I don’t know about you but I am growing tired of this troublesome trail
There is not a ghost of a hope that it will ever make an interesting tale.
So lets say farewell to this unlikely crew
Lets all go and find something better to do!
