Day 30 - I've Been Quite Wordy

A post-apocalyptic surprise coming soon!

Finally. It's the end of the road. And I need a rest. Desperately.

So, without further ado, here is the last, and quite possibly the least, poem* for National Poetry Day. Published late because I was too tired to format, etc...

The Last Poem

I thought it would be easy.
I didn't know it would make me queasy
Thinking up a new idea each day.

It's also harder to do a rhyme
On time
With something meaningful to say.

But now it's done
And it was fun,
Though I surely need a rest

From writing all this inane stuff
And silly fluff
While making myself a Twitter pest.

So, you won't see me for a while,
And though that may bring a smile,
Rest assured, I shall return.

I will write some brand-new lines
That make you cringe and whine,
And possibly your stomach churn

From puns and silly jokes and such
For which you'll say, "Thank you very much,"
And I will say "You're welcome."

  1. Aww, we won't see you for a while? Boo! Keep on writing!

    1. I knew it was you reading the blog when Canada hit #3 in the Blogger stats for country of origin for viewers for today!

      These last few months have been rough - too much to do at work. So much so that even writing these silly little poems was a major undertaking. I'm hoping things slow down in the next few weeks and I can get back to some (re)writing.
