NaPoWriMo, Day 25. I give up

NaPoWriMo Day 26 : I refuse to even attempt to explain today’s prompt. But I did write a poem about it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Give up!

Okay I can’t do it you finally have me beat

I cannot do today’s prompt, you have me in defeat.

I hummed and I have harred  but my mind has turned to lard!

I spent an hour or two working on “The night they took the news from Aix to Ghent.”

I tried to erase the in fact I shortened it  a lot  but it was not good enough and my patience was spent.

So there it is you have it, I have done my very best. Sadly you have got me banged to rights.

I have given you my all and followed your every prompt through all these April nights.

So Aix to Ghent three riders went. Two f them had their horses keel over

The third one got to Ghent God knows why he went , but when he arrived his horse did keel over!

So though I am not happy, in fact I am feeling very crappy I have to write an entry

Because I love a challenge , which I have answered all month so it’s elementary

Because  I cannot  do today’s erasure challenge, you finally have me beat

I cannot do today’s prompt,I am weeping loudly for  you have me in defeat.

    Ah, poor Willow! The prompts are optional anyway, so you’re still on top of it! My original plan was to do “The Raven”, but I had forgotten how LONG that poem is, which is why I did Alone instead 😉
