An Inauspicious Return To Writing Poetry After 20 Months Of Not Writing Poetry


I haven’t penned a poem
Sine the year ended in eight
So, it would be quite unfair
To expect this to be great

Quality is not my goal
That would be a step too far
If anything, my aim is
To really lower the bar

To write poetry this bad
Is nothing short of a feat
You can’t replicate this dross
Don’t even try to compete

Don’t kid yourself that you could
Produce such appalling verse
You might think your poem’s bad
This is definitely worse

There is perhaps merit in
Consistent rhymes and rhythms
Which were at least on display
Until the final line of what, it turns out, is a really rubbish poem

Continuity Error

If I manage to write something today it will be my 15th post in 15 days, which isn’t bad going. On the other hand, I’m not certain I’m going to get chance to get to a computer today, or indeed have time to write anything.

It’s quite a dilemma – I expect there’ll be a time where I’m content to blog on a less regular basis. Certainly there’ll be other days when I’m just too busy.

But I’m not ready for the run to come to an end just yet.

What I could do is write something yesterday and then quickly post it today when I get a chance, or even better use that ‘advanced scheduling’ feature so that whatever I end up writing just appears today without me having to go near a computer.

That should be possible.

Well that’s all sorted then. Now I just need something to write about.

Of I could just use this, as if it’s some sort of clever ‘meta’ blog post and pretend that’s what I wanted to do all along.

Yep that’s what I’ll do.
