NaPoWriMo, A Trio of Triolets

NaPoWriMo Day 23: Today’s  prompt is to write  a triolet, which is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines.  So I have attempted three separate Triolets, one Coffee is a rearrangement of one I had written a while back . Stupid and Eggshells are both new…… here goes then.

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

Stupid

Why am I  stupid  I want to know

Why do I make his danger signals glow

Whatever I try makes him angry   so …..

Why am I so stupid I want to know

Why is it I always set his danger signals aglow.

Why am I  stupid  I want to know

Why do I make his danger signals glow

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

Coffee

I do  love my cup of coffee

Especially when it’s hot and frothy

Not for me Vanilla or toffee for

I do love my cup of coffee

But it must be hot and frothy for

I do  love my cup of coffee

Especially when it’s hot and frothy

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

Eggshells

I walk on eggshells all my life

Trying to be the perfect wife

Heading off all  trouble and strife

I walk on eggshells all my life

Shall I ever be the perfect wife

I walk on eggshells all my life

Trying to be the perfect wife
