Beaver, or: Clam

A limerick

Babs Beaver was happy as a clam;
Her new style was bedazzled and glam.
Beau gave a happy nod
But found the fad rather odd,
Staring long at her trim, sequined dam.

d’Verse poetics prompt: Animal architecture

At d’Verse, poets are prompted to write poems about animals that construct their own homes.

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!
