My Take – The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 2/29 – 3/6/2020

Chelsea has asked for research. Argh! 🙀 This is the 61st challenge.

Now let me put on my Ern Malley hat.



Her greasy small hand

Missing these four years

Unharnessed Fannie

Proprietor of the playhouse

It’s pointless

Ivan the terrible

Joined longhorn herds

Sang out to his team

One brief nod

Seemed thin and sour

Useless thoughts

It didn’t matter

Get on the horse

And go


*Most phrases taken randomly from the book I’m reading for book club this month “News of the World,” by Paulette Jiles

  1. The news of the world was full of detritus when it was a newspaper. The book of the same name looks a lot more honest. Ivan the terrible a Texan cattleman who would have known if it was not for your poetically informed response. 😀😊 such fun it is here.
