‘Step away from the poetry, madam.’

Busted – should have known they’re looking for me for serious crimes against poetry. I finish my line before I face them. Defiantly.

‘Officers, please have a seat. If you behave yourselves, I might offer you a treat.’

‘Enough with the terrible rhymes, you vandal.’

One tries to manhandle me away from my desk.

‘You know what I’ll do? I’ll write what I want. My lines may not scan as well as they should, but I’m gonna keep at it. Poetry’s here for good. How else will I improve?’

‘Good point,’ they say. ‘We approve.’

    1. Thank you 🙂
      To be honest, it’s mostly in my head. I still think my poetry is terrible, even though I’ve decided to put some of it on the blog.


      1. Let’s have a revolution. We’ll line them all up against the wall and shoot them – except that the only place they live is inside your head…
        Quick! Duck!


  1. Poetry police! what could i think of it, an invention or a dream or a thought! I think it’s what make a man to keep writing for himself! I don’t what you think of it when you invent it? But it could prove a inspiration for someone 🙂
