2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 12 – Seriously Silly


For today’s prompt, take on one (or both) of the following prompts:

  • Write a serious poem. Or…
  • Write a silly poem.



Are you for real?

That is just plain silly.


My Grandma was a serious woman

She made lemon tarts

And very fruity farts

But she never admitted

To what she committed.


Grandpa was a silly old man

He did things ever so willy-nilly

Like buying a chestnut filly

The horse could run like all crazy

But its future was always so hazy.


Life is full of the seriously silly

We see it playing out each day

In circumstances come what may

When little green men come to visit

Word gets round you’d be mad to miss it.
