call and response

by damommza & sunovawot

I cannot be a poet
No matter what u say
For if i was a poet
I’m rhyme the day away

I’d take words like *suet*
And find some words that rhyme
Don’t think that I can’t do it
I’d just need lots of time

And then I’d be a “poet”
But none so good as you
I absolutely know it
And what I say is true

sunovawot

say it three times and it’s true so they say
as sure as the night time will follow the day
but you said it once and thusly I fear
your words are no more than the froth on my beer

poems make poets or vice verser it seems
they tangle and mangle and squander your dreams
poets write poems and doggerel and rhymes
but these I’m afraid are the least of their crimes

the challenge is laid down, perhaps by myself
but anything’s better than life on the shelf
give me a tail wind and I’ll play with your suet
and when I am done you can see if I blew it

    For everyone who wants to know how we write poems together..this is how we do it..one of us gets an idea..or a thought or even a word and starts a tale then sends it to the other to either finish or write a poetic response to and then the story is complete…. 😀

      HA!! Thank you PB!! We do write about the oddest things sometimes but we are always in one mind when we do it (and I’m not saying “whose mind”) 😀 😀

    • Thank you 😀

      a poem about suet
      while it is true it
      maybe that we screw it
      up when we do it
      so let us eschew it 😀
