2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 1 – Foolish


Foolish Poem

I woke up feeling foolish

But she got out,

Said: “I have to wash my hair.”


Went to the café looking foolish

She said “It’s all a mistake.

You curdle my coffee, goodbye.”


Sat in the bath being foolish

She said ‘Imitation is flattery.

But yours is just sad.”


Foolish stood on her high horse

Looked down her nose, scoffed,

Said: “You’ll never be good enough.”


Sweet young girl took pity

Came for lunch then ran for safety

No fool like an old fool.


Old fool foolish old fool

Sits in the park, memory is all he has

Wishful should be his middle name.

    oof! now this is an excellent penning in examination of the humanity so many of us feel and experience in our lives, fortunately or unfortunately? (to be determined and decided in hindsight, of course) at some point. Well written – and stylistically – I love it!

    Great job Michael 🙂
