I have typed out two rather dull, uninteresting posts today. Now stop that!! I hear you saying “So tell us something new.” (***sniff, sniff, you have cut me deeply…) Anyway…as I was saying…I have a bit of blogger’s block today. It wasn’t so much that I don’t have things on my mind as much as trying to put them to paper…errr..to computer as the case may be.
So rather than publish either of the two that I may or may not foist on you in the future, I decided to go back to some of my truly awful poetry. Yeah, you heard me…poetry. When I get bored, I write bad poetry.
These two rather unremarkable poems were actually written for a friend of mine over at We Work For Cheese. Nicky who is super-duper cute and fun, had a 30 day blog challenge not long ago and I wrote these poems to go with a couple of her posts.
Thought Number One…The Shoe Poem
Nicky has a thing for shoes. She loves them and can’t get enough of them. I seriously don’t get why shoes are so revered these days but hey…what ever makes people happy. She does get my total awe in the fact that she can walk all day in stilettos.
Here was my poem:
Did I not warn you? I am not a poet…I am a cynic that doesn’t understand shoe collectors.
Thought Number Two —Nicky Wrote a Poem to which I wrote a sequel.
Nicky wrote a great poem called The Rhyme of the Mariner. I encourage you to go over and read it. I wrote a little sequel that I have edited for the purpose of today’s post. You will see why…shortly.
Sorry, in advance for my poem.
So there you have it. Two really lousy poems to tide me over till I think of something entertaining and worthwhile to say. Hopefully soon.
