A nonsense limerick
A particularly glun binnabur school boy had to durp prillowets as a pool boy. At work, he zezzed a vullowy woman who begged of him, 'Please, fritt my flumin!' Of course, HE claims he buppered her nalloy!
d’Verse prompt: Narrative Nonsense
At d’Verse, poets were prompted to write nonsense poems, while keeping the following in consideration:
- The intention is to telling a story, which is clearly narrative and not gibberish;
- The characters and their actions may seem absurd or playful, but what they do must make sense in a nonsense way;
- It is fine to use invented words, but it should be clear from the concept if they are creatures, things, or even verbs.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
