For whatever reason, last night at work, my attention wandered to that most flexible and least- reputable of verse forms, the limerick. We have a thread here somewhere on Harry Potter haiku, and now here's another poetic form. Feel free to compose, or to run screaming in terror, the choice is yours. I'll start off with the kind of result one gets around 4 a.m. after ten hours at work:
A lightning scar gracing one's forehead
Is better than being left *for* dead.
Witness Voldy, poor soul,
Who, no longer whole,
Had to roam about dis- em- bod- *iee*- ed.
Note the lame footwork. Tell me what you think. Personally, I think night shift doesn't do me or my creativity a lot of good.
Hermione, looking for Trevor,
Had no idea that she'd ever
Be turned into rock
Or turn back the clock,
Though everyone knew she was clever.
There was a young wizard named Harry
Who found himself quite legendary.
He rode off to school
Where he broke lots of rules
but Dumbledore still let him tarry.
It's a good thing that these aren't supposed to be good.
