So, it's April and that means National Poetry Month. Last year I penned a poem a day and the habit stuck, but the place I posted to is no longer. No problem, I found an interesting and talented community at Poetic Asides, and this will be my home away from home for this month.
Don’t chase after Sestina
she’s quite demanding
and you’ll never satisfy her
That Sonnet has a romantic streak
but don’t you see
she’s snooty and pretentious?
Ghazal comes from a good family
and she’s kind
You should spend some time
with the Tanka girl
she could make you very happy
In my culture
we’re taught to heed the advice
of Grandmothers and Aunties
But even so
I find myself mentally undressing
Inspired by 2011 Poem-A-Day Challenge Day 6 "Don't (blank), (blank)"
