My 2nd triolet
I too oft repeat myself - when I get excited Getting myself carried away - far too easily Even interrupting - totally(!) uninvited I too oft repeat myself - when I get excited Thus making friendly chats awkwardly one-sided Watch conversation partners shaking heads (dizzily) I too oft repeat myself - when I get excited Getting myself carried away - far too easily

I often say to less. I’m probably the one shaking my head. Haha! 🙂
😶 Terveen 😶
Well, I’ve said it before … 😉 (Nicely done David).
💚💙 Marion 💙💚
Too much caffeine does that to me, David! 🙂
I am really taken with this triolet! I had to read it twice to savor all the rhyme and refrains! Yum!
Poetry is a dish best served warm. 😉
Nice triolet, rhyming is great! I got inspired by that poem I wrote on love when my social sir was droning about the Romanticism Movement, and wrote another poem on it. Here:
forgive my ignorance, but what does “social sir” mean?
Our social teacher.Forgive my ignorance, but me and my friends always address him as “social sir”.😋
And what does a “social” teacher teach?
Social science!Do you not have that in Israel?
well, I was raised in the USA – so I know that school system better. I had “social studies” until high school (I think), and then we had various kinds of history – US history and World history…
In Israel, there are civics classes, Jewish history classes, and world history classes.
My children did Social Studies, they hadn’t invented it when I was at school.
That’s exactly what social science is here, just geography, democratic politics, Indian and world history, and economics. All put together give what we call “:Social science”.
and what do you call female teachers?
After my time.
Social science in India is history and geography together, along with some contemporary stuff like environmental science, economics, etc.
and – male teachers are ‘Sir’ … and female teachers are ? Madam ?
Yup, madam, or ma’am,as we address them.
Yeah, but isn’t that so where you live as well?
In Israel? No. Teachers are called “Teacher [First name]”
Hmm..I didn’t know that. I thought “Sir” and “Madam/ma’am” were common in many countries.
I did my post graduation in the US. I had a hard time addressing my profs as prof. soandso. I kept slipping back into sir and madam, and they had to keep telling me not to do that…
And in the USA it is “Mr. or Mrs. [Last name]”
More clever wordplay.
who, me? 🤪
Nah! Your words. 😉
