So here we are.
Today marks the end of Horribly Local Poor Poetry Month (HoLoPoPoMo), and the experience can best be summed up with this haiku:
not a success, nor failure
it just existed
But that can’t possibly be our last HoLoPoPoMo entry. No, here ‘tis:
what holopopomo has taught us
We always knew that “orange” is hard to rhyme
That’s nothing new -- we hear it all the time
Another tricky word to rhyme is “sugar”
But even then, the crude can still use “booger”
So -- fine -- avoiding certain words and themes
It got so I was rhyming in my dreams
Until one day I longed to write of films
And that’s the moment when I realized -- -- -- crap.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this November adventure. Back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Yes indeed. Welcome to me.
