Once upon a morning fog,
creeping through a squishy bog,
comes a creature (or maybe log?)
grinning like a drunk sea dog.

His toothy smile seems to say,
“Time to bring the breakfast tray.
I’ll have croissants and tea today.
And it’d be lovely if you’d stay.”

But just beware this faithless host!
While he entreats with forceful boast,
you’re not a guest he admires most.
You’re on the menu, served on toast!


Day Sixteen

The Prompt:  Write in Skeltonic (or tumbling) verse. In this form, there’s no specific number of syllables per line, but each line should be short, and should aim to have two or three stressed syllables. And the lines should rhyme. You just rhyme the same sound until you get tired of it, and then move on to another sound. Skeltonic verse is a fun way to get some words on the page without racking your brains for deep meaning. It’s a form that lends itself particularly well to poems for children, satirical verse, and just plain nonsense.

Guess who!
