NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 25: Nonsensical Clerihews


Said the tired mom,
It looks like a giant bomb
Went off in this house.
The kids were quiet as a mouse.

Whoever knew
a little clerihew
could brighten your night
when it rhymes just right?


One reason I enjoy NaPoWriMo:  I’m exposed to new forms of poetry.  Case in point, the clerihew, a quatrain with an AABB rhyme scheme, forced rhyme, irregular meter.  Fun.  Poetic license gets full reign.  Here’s the prompt for today over at NaPoWriMo.Net
