I hope you’ve all had a good week. Here’s my latest challenge for you:
Option one: Write a limerick with the word KNIT in it somewhere
Option two: Write a poem on the theme of SUNSHINE
Option three: Write a twenty-word story using all of the following words: BEAUTY, DRUNK, CRACKERS, CHEESE, LADDER and PIQUANT
Last week option one was to write a limerick with the word CLOWN featuring in it somewhere. Here are the entertaining results:
Keith Channing treats us with five:
‘Clown’ is this week’s chosen word
Great for a smart-ass or nerd.
To compose a good rhyme
Will take far too much time
So I’ll just knock out something absurd.
Each clown wears his own special hat
Be it pointed or rounded or flat
It’s probably best
If it matches his vest
Else he’ll just look too much of a prat.
A clown often changes his act
After seeing his public react
His expression is quizzical
His comedy physical
Slapstick, as a matter of fact.
The smile of a clown hides his tears
As he stands up, each day, to his fears.
Is the public aware
That his aim’s not to scare,
But to pull out some laughs and some cheers.
It’s the laughter of kids keeps him going
Not the falling, the running, the throwing.
But the life of a clown
Can be turned upside-down
By the sadness that he’s banned from showing.
Option two asked you to write a poem about rain:
