Born To Nag – A Duodora 

Born To Nag

The endless drone
Of someone who can nag
And nag again more
What pleasure I ask
Is in it for you
Watching me squirm from your verbal attack
Imprisoning me without a leeway

The endless drone
Of incessant k’vetch
I begin to dream
Of another life
Absent from your whine
Where I no longer hear what I’ve done wrong
Because you have been spirited away

Lisa is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with some Halloween fun.
We are to write a poem, using the Duodora form if we wish, about a human
attribute that is particularly irritating to you.  I particularly cannot bear
nagging in any form.  I liked the idea of writing a Duodora (my first).
The Duodora is:
a quatorzain made up of 2 septets.
syllabic,  4/6/5/5/5/10/10 syllables per line.
rhymed Axxxxxb Axxxxxb L1 is repeated as a refrain that begins
the 2nd stanza. x is unrhymed.

One Liner Wednesday – Reflection

On reflection, and as we get older, do you find there are always a lot of “what if” statements that come to mind? I try not to do it because what’s the point? There are no do-overs in this life but it would be fun just to imagine how life could have been knowing then what we know now. Don’t you agree?

For Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesday

One Liner Wednesday

Happy New Year to all of you who read my blog and thank you for your continued support.

It is the first Wednesday of 2020 and time for Linda G. Hill’s One Liner challenge. I hope you enjoy what I have chosen for today and please let me know, is it just me, or does this happen to you too in the grocery line? Do you find it annoying too?

One Liner Wednesday

I came across this image and it reminded me of me! Why do I always insist on carrying every grocery bag in at one time? I struggle, bump into the car door trying to close it and can barely get into the house because I have too many bags on either side of me, yet I also refuse to make two trips! What does it mean? I must be mad or something.

In response to Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesday
