Blogger’s Lament

Not a poetry fan, but it’s about blogging. That speaks for itself

Blogger’s Lament

I do not want to bait a hook,
do the dishes, write a book.
Don’t wake at 6 or make my bed.
Most of my time’s spent in my head.
In two weeks, I’ll be seventy-one,
so when all is said and done,
I’ve earned the right to just obsess
on what I wish to. I confess
I’m up at eight or nine or ten,

with laptop or with notes and pen,

fulfilling all my blogging jobs,
and I must say that there are gobs
of prompt sites since

(and here I wince)
WordPress quit, thereby unleashing
scads of prompt sites without teaching
Mr. Linky or other ways
to try to ease our blogging days.

Now hours are spent just trying to

link up to that frog that’s blue

or finding where the prompt is hidden
even after we’ve been bidden
to come post on someone’s site.

  1. Thanks, John, for reblogging my piece. I’m always most honored when people who do not like poetry say they enjoy reading mine. I loved deciphering poetry like a puzzle in college but hope there is a level to mine that everyone can enjoy. In some, perhaps, a deeper level to be found, but first and foremost I’d like my work to be accessible.

    1. I’m glad to share it. I have almost 1000 Followers, so hopefully at least my regulars will see it and take a look at your own page. Later on when I wake up I will take a better look at your blog and see what else you have written for us
