Poem for Read Write Poem 92


Read Write Poem offers this Wordle for prompt #92. Thanks RWP!

A quick write, but I used all the words. You can probably tell where my mind has been lately. :)



Hip Hip Hooray

one husk of human
picked the piker's plum

a scofflaw at heart
with pittance for a soul

Bernie didn't conform
basked in a sweet clover limelight

professed to sleep at night
without a doctor's remedy

but from jail's extended stop
this bane of the multitude carps

there's no escape file baked
inside Friday night's confection

I have a bit of affection for poor Bernie. If I could bake, I might send him that file :). I like the line "this bane of the multitude carps". A fun read.

This reads especially well aloud: "picked the piker's plum" & "this bane of the multitude carps". Thanks for the jaunt!

Poor Bernie. Sounds like he might be awhile getting that file. Fun read. Have a great weekend.

I love the image of "sweet clover limelight" it contrasts nicely with the image of a jail. Very nice.

I liked the pittance of a soul and the jail's "extended stop".

I like a lot visual poetry, of course I am refering to the first part of this.
And I think you wrote a good poem, with interesting words, a nice sound and a slightly intriguing semantic content over all.

Take care

I liked this poem and even more the second time, when I knew what it was about. Then the first four lines became my favorite.

The beginning sounds like an alliterative tongue-twister -- you manage to put together words that twist the mind and ear!

from Therese B. at RWP -- Sorry I forgot to put my name to the last comment which was mine -- the one about alliterative tongue-twisters.
