I’m Gonna

It is time once again for Chelsea Ann Owens’ Weekly Terrible Writing Contest. This week’s prompt is the word fifty, and the entire mess poem must be exactly 50 words.

~~

Now I’m gonna

write a poem

in exactly 50 words.

I cannot think of anything.

Hey look! Outside there’s birds!

What’s that falling from their butts?

Could it be airborne turds?

And there’s a squirrel eating nuts;

he’s grateful they aren’t curds.

Such is life in my backyard

in fifty words.

  1. Oh dear, she’s done it again. One of my favorite authors I long to read, No, make that look forward to reading, savoring each word as sentences form and the story ensues, bursting forth to a brilliant satisfactory conclusion, always such literary feats. I about the weekend terrible writing contest.
