Two weeks in to the poetry month and this morning we are to write a poem that plays with homographs, homophobes and homonyms. My poem is a little ridiculous to say the least but it is on prompt and I had fun writing it so who cares?!
Can’t bare the pair of bears
who lie and then lie low
Upstairs they growl and stare
Some do their sums, some don’t
It grates to see their greatness
Dissolve into such waste
Their waists betray their straightness
Such feinting leaves me faint
You’ve guessed these guests are ghoulish
They’ve made a fair maid cry
These lines are somewhat foolish
I see this with my eyes! 👀
