NaPoWriMo : Day 28 – Who’s the Boss?

National Poetry Writing Challenge Day 28 is to write a poem using Skeltonic Verse. Skeltonic Verse gets it’s name from John Skelton, a fifteenth century English poet who pioneered the use of short stanzas with irregular meter, but two strong stresses per line (otherwise known as “dipodic” or two-footed verse). The lines rhyme but there’s not a rhyme scheme per se. The poet simply rhymes against one word until he gets bored and moves to another. Each line should not exceed six words.

My poem for today  because nobody likes the boss.

He’s the Boss,

Oh Man, he’s cross!

He ‘aint fair,

He don’t care,

He’ll give you the stare,

And your hair,

You’ll want to tear!

If he plays foul,

Don’t you growl,

Don’t you howl,

He’s on the prowl,

He’ll make you rot,

If you’re caught,

Or Not-

You’ll get shot!

You better watch out,

Don’t you shout,

Don’t you flout,

He’s the one with the clout!
