Been Asked to Write a Sonnet

Shakespeare in comedy mode



Ingrid recently set a sonnet challenge for her readers

I missed the deadline. She has asked me to put my head down and learn some real poetry in preparation for the next one. Here are my thoughts at the moment:



Been asked to write a sonnet

I don’t know what they are

I ain’t no Willy Shakespeare

I ain’t no sonnet star




I’m just a lowly poet

Trying to learn the ropes

My friend said it will drive me nuts

How am I gonna cope?



Shakespeare was a rhymer….


Was he?….


And he wrote sonnets…..


Did he?….


And he wrote humour….


Did he?….


And he was a lowly poet to begin with……


Did it drive him nuts?….


Probably…..


So there’s hope for me?….


Head down.
Show you can shine with some real poetry…
.


What?…..
