DAY 27 – LET SOMEONE ELSE TAKE THE LEAD

NaPoWriMo Day 27
For Read Write Poem



Carolee Sherwood wonders if you’re running on fumes like she is. She hopes her prompt takes some of the heat off and points your exhausted brain down the path where your 27th poem lies.
Take a word that’s part of you — your name, your birth month, your favorite animal, your guiding principle. Write that word vertically down a page and use the letters to start the lines of a poem. When you’re done, you’ll have an acrostic poem. (Though the prompt could be as simple as “write an acrostic poem,” the word sounds scary this late in the month. This prompt is designed to ease you into the final stretch. Don’t stress too much about the word you choose. NaPoWriMo is just for fun. Are you having fun?)


ACROSTIC

Says Sir Ten explained in brief:
Thai mispronunciation
Americanized vocal
Nuance; closing syllable
Stan transforms; becomes Sir Ten
Kow chai dai mai? Understand?
It’s all about what Stan Says

And just to show how much fun I’ve been having; here’s a limerick:


COMEDY NIGHT AT MCD.

FREE BEER… TOMORROW

Tips – they asked us to put a pound in
Beer – most of the punters were drowned in
The bar-tenders joke
Was written, not spoke
Laugh – I nearly got the next round in
