#100Days100Poems Day 61 #SmallHandsPoetry

Today, a limerick, with some off-rhymes. And probably more apologies to Colin Mochrie.

 

There once was a Lord named Dampnut
whose collusion with Russians was rampant.
Investigations have been started
so soon he should be departed
And his damage to our democracy dampened.

#100Days100Poems Day 58 #TantrumTanka

Fear not! The poem might not have appeared on time, but you just imagine how great a double dose will feel! #SmallHandsPoetry

 

The Joy of Having an Attentive Microwave

The thing about wild
accusations is that you
don’t have to have proof.
All you need’s a twit, a tweet,
and some loyal Gullibles.

#100Days100Poems Day 57 #TantrumTanka

This could very well count as #SmallHandsPoetry, too, but #TantrumTanka really nails it. And this one is indeed titled.

 

When You Bamboozle Your Way Into Elected Office And All Your Friends Are Really Really Rich

I don’t wanna pay
for meals. I don’t wanna pay
For arts. Or science.
I just wanna pay for war
& tax cuts. War & tax cuts.

#100Days100Poems Day 56 #SmallHandsPoetry

Today we’re adding yet another element to the #100Days100Poems wheelhouse. Hoping to get some good protests out of some short forms new to/unused by this writer, Day 56 finds us christening #SmallHandsPoetry, because with hands that small, one can’t really write that much, n’est-ce pas?

Here we present to you two versions of a cinquain, a five-line poem broken based on syllable counts, or a five-line poem revolving around an image presented in the opening line, and circling back around to it.

These are, at the moment, untitled poems from #SmallHandPoetry:

***

Wire-tapped
microwave! Cam-
era-ready toaster!
Can you smell what the con man is
cooking?

*

microwave
wire-tapped & camera-ready
“What’d you say?”
Must remain vigilant! Thus:
smart microwaves.
