Fixing the Roof – #Saturday Mix – #Rhyme Time

Image by David Mark from Pixabay 

Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.

Our rhyming words this week are:

  1. batch
  2. catch
  3. hatch
  4. match
  5. patch
  6. thatch

===============================

I had to thatch a patch

I hoped that it would match

So, I mixed up a batch of thatch

Before the chicken eggs would hatch

Remembering also to put in a window catch

Six Sentence Story – Silly Poem

Image by Michelle Maria from Pixabay 

My silly little poem was written in response to Denise’s Six Sentence Story Challenge over at Girlie on the Edge’s Blog. This weeks challenge was to use the word “Gallery”.

 

 

Mallory let’s go to the gallery

Sorry, no, not on my salary

Go ask Valerie to go with you to the gallery

I did and she’s having problems with her allergies

How about if I take you to that bar in Calgary

Only if you promise to buy me a daiquiri

 

Men in Pots – #FFFC

The following silly poem was written in response to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.

Plant a man

Watch him grow

Does he grow fast

or does he grow slow

A vegetarian …

I’d say so

Look at his face, he looks like a grump

I would too with those bumps

Horns on his head holding up trees

Pull off a leaf and he will sneeze

He sits all day inside his pot

He’d better take care before he rots. 

 

 

 

 

 

The End of Something Great

It is with great sadness that Chelsea has decided to discontinue the weekly terrible poetry contest. So today I sat down and wrote the following bunches of silliness for The Final Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest.

Holy moly chicken man

All I want is a grand

I will be your friend for a long time

Until of course, I lose my mind

hearts

Oh my goodness

Oh my gosh

I would love some mackintosh

As I’m as hungry as a bear

Look at my cute underwear

hearts

There is a moose upon my roof

Trying to catch a silly goose

There’s a dog in the tree

He’s laughing, he’s full of glee

There’s a mouse chasing a cat

I’m going to get you, you dirty rat

 

hearts

Look and you will find

All of those you have left behind

Dust bunnies under the chair

Mixed all in with the dog’s hair

You think I don’t care? Beware.

hearts

You are a silly goat

I think you’ve lost my rope

I’m such a dope

I don’t know how to cope

Without my rope

Nope

hearts

Before I go there’s one more thing

I really wish that I could sing

I for one will miss your contests

A weekly terrible but the best

It was fun

I wish that I’d been here when it begun

Is there anything we could do

So many of us are feeling blue

Please change your mind

and keep it going

If you do we’ll all be glowing

Hammy the hamster

Was such a little prankster

He hid in dad’s shoe

 

When dad stepped into

Are you ready for this one

Squish, Hammy no more

 

What a Mess

The following was written for a challenge called Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.

 

The classroom was a zoo

the teacher had loose screws

she didn’t know what to do

The classroom was a mess

Looked like a tornado, no less

 

 

 

 

 

Is There a Monster Underneath

The following poem was written in response to #Crimson’s Creative Challenge #70.

CCC70

 

What lurks beneath?

Perhaps something with very large teeth.

Will it bite me if I look to see?

Will it bite me in the knee?

Maybe it’s friendly

Maybe it’s deadly

I don’t wait around

Time to leave this town

Running as fast as I can

Back to my van

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day Poem – Just For Fun

This is a poem I wrote back in 2011. I thought I’d share it for Friday.
Don’t bring me roses or chocolates tonight
Bring me diamonds that glitter in the moonlight
A Mercedes would be nice as well
Rack the cards, the house we can sell
Don’t forget that cruise you promised
This weekend off we go to the Bahamas
Mumm champagne will do just fine
Before we go out, of course, to dine
Caviar is expected
Forget it and you’ll be rejected
If you insist on bringing home candy
Please  make sure they are filled with brandy
To top the night off, I will have to insist
 that you give me a back rub, I will not resist

Before I go, darling, there is one more thing

Make sure the diamond is a four-carat ring!

Just to let you know, I wrote this just for fun as the title says. I as well as many others I am sure are sick to death of Special Days and holidays being over-commercialized. Spend, spend, spend no, no, no. There are many ways you can show your love for someone on Valentine’s Day without lavishing them with gifts.

The Hound

This was written for a Six Sentence Story challenge over at Denise’s.

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Come back here and link your post…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 🙂

PROMPT WORD:  POUND

I heard a sound

I looked around

Guess what I found

Yes, a hound

Sitting proudly upon a mound

I sat beside him on the ground

The Swimming Pig

Piggly Wiggly learned how to swim

He worked out every day at the gym

Until one day when he broke a limb
