Our area has started doing poetry jams here once a month and I’m planning on participating in the next one. I don’t write a lot of poems, but I thought I’d share one tonight. I wrote this years ago for a writer’s critique and challenge site called Themestream. Anyone remember that great site?
Anyhow, here’s my poetic offering ;p
A Writer’s Wish
If I could pen a scribble here
To a buyer that would pay me dear
I’d slide up quick off my soft rear
And gallop to my computer where
My bony cat in basket sits
And eyes my work thru narrow slits
He eats not fish but old prune pits
For small I’m paid for written wits.
But say perchance, I could succeed
To lure the president to lead
Me thru his tale of slippery greed
And naughty things we want to read
I’d see success at my feet laid
My cat now fat and me well paid.
