Ah, so my son the Monkey has decided to write a few poems for National Poetry Month! I cannot not share such things. This week I’ll try to highlight some friends and fellow bloggers who are doing the one a day challenge and also some of those who already seem to post poetry, including audio on nearly daily basis!
Well, since it is National Poetry Month. Here’s a little something. I don’t know if I could write poems for a whole month like some people plan doing. But maybe I’ll write a few here and there. I got some ideas. But I’ve been slacking.
A murder has been committed
and the perpetrator is one that we cannot simply lock away
not to say they fled the scene
the fact is that they were never seen
this was a freak accident you see
this wasn’t meant to be
the cold dead body you see on the ground
was offed by no man or woman
this one was one that never had a chance
this one was a victim of circumstance

I quite liked his poem … and, i have liked all the posts you’ve shared… I don’t know why I hadn’t followed him before, but, today I clicked the follow button. He’s quite unique, has a tremendous writer’s voice for still being so young — hopefully he’ll keep his writing going. Too bad “America’s Got Talent” doesn’t have a segment for writers. He’d win for sure!
Yes, I am of the mind to encourage him, and though I don’t want to swell his head past usefulness, I believe if he keeps it up, he’ll be twice the writer his father can ever hope to be. 🙂
How wonderful! Very enjoyable and I’m delighted to support and encourage your son, the poet, and have followed his site to keep up on his works. You must be just about bursting with pride about his good work! Cheers, Gina
Indeed, I am, Gina. Indeed I am. 🙂
