It’s Day 6 of the A to Z Poetry Challenge hosted by Rena Traxel. F is for free verse and/or for fractured tale. Free verse scares the bejeebies out of me. I’d much rather rhyme. But I threw in a little free verse.
Hop! Plop! But Know When to Stop!
Frog went for a hop
Ran right into a house.
Oh well, hop
Right onto the kitchen table.
Oh my! Fresh fly pie!
Gee! How lucky can one frog be?
Ew! Too fresh! (That bugs me.)
Ew! Too old! (I’d probably croak.)
Yum! Just right! (I’m toadally lucky!)
Right back outside.
“Time’s fun when you’re havin’ flies!”
But not when the bears come home!
**And many thanks to Kermit the Frog for his famous words: “Time’s fun when you’re havin’ flies!”

What fun free verse. That’s how you do it! Grebbit!
It’s so freeing! LOL
Perfect! Thanks for sharing your poems with us…so funny and you have a real way with words. The A-Z poetry challenge looks like a fun challenge! Good on you…perhaps I’ll take part next year if there’s one. 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to read my poems!the Challenge is fun. You should just write them on your own…it gets the creative juices flowing.
This was so VERY clever!!! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!!!!
Thank you, Natalie. You are too kind!
Really laughing out loud! Toadally love this! You are quite clever, Penny!
Thanks, Pam. I pondered over this one! Free verse is not my cup of tea (I like reading it, but not writing it) and I couldn’t help but do some rhyming.
I love the Goldielocks twist!!
Thanks, Lori. I loved yours.
Ha ha! I love the lines “that bugs me/I’d probably croak/I’m toadally lucky/”! Your poem is adorable.
Thanks, Rena. And thanks a million for the work you are putting into this challenge.
