My Take scrimerlick- TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 264, 3/8/22 #Create Your Own Syllabic Form

This week we were asked to create our own syllabic form.

A scrimerlick is a first person lament.
Five lines with the following syllables per line 9-9-5-5-9 – no rhyming. Refrain from using “ing” words. This poem is titled.

Aging or Genetics

I went to the doctor for nothing 
she viewed my chart and hid her chagrin
*expects healing now-
no acceptance of age*
yet, I’ve had these complaints forever

  1. Now I’m close to you on this… I get my ‘official old lady card’ this year.
    One benefit (if I get the same insurance as hubby) is the free (though limited in some areas) gym membership. The place I’ll go to has a Eucalyptus sauna…or at least they did and an inside walking track and an inside pool!
