another sonnet by Paula

Thanks for this sonnet, Paula. I laughed a lot when I read it, although I then did rather wish I had a case of gin, too.


My muse went out to get a pack of smokes

This hasn’t helped me peck out artful verse

If muses are a myth or just a hoax

Then why’s my writing getting worse and worse?

Bad news for you, poor literary guard

‘Cuz you’re the one who has to read this shit

I never was and ne’er shall be the Bard

And sucketh doth the sonnet I submit

The only way this piece of crap will win

Is if I send the judge a case of gin.

smokes/hoax is rhyming genius.

"And sucketh doth the sonnet I submit"

I'll be quoting that line for years!!!!

I've enjoyed the other sonnets, truly, but this is the one that made me snort!

That's just hilarious. I was too lazy to try my hand at this. My effort would have sucketh worseth, though...

Definitely take the case of gin! It might come in handy.
