A Pitiful Poem @ Small Stories and Stuff

Each week, Jenny Matlock of “... off on my tangent...” assigns us Centusians a prompt from which to construct a 100 (or less) word story. No photos are allowed and the posts must be PG. This week, she mixed it all up my assigning a poem that rhymes! I don’t write poems that rhyme, so this will be a challenge for me. If you’re new to Saturday Centus, you will find all the rules as well as the posts by clicking on the Saturday Centus button on my sideboard.

This week's prompt? “I’m not a chicken...” Following is my pitiful attempt to make a poem out of it.



I’m not a chicken, my dear.
Try to scare me if you dare.
Chase and me I’ll disappear,
maybe ride off on a mare
or make a famous career
searching for treasure so rare.
I’d make a great pioneer
not stop to give a small care
if you’re bringing up the rear.
Jenny, I’m losing my hair!

(I'm totally embarrassed, but since I'm not a chicken, I'm posting anyway).

I think we are all a little terrified of this prompt...but we are not chickens, just as you are not, and posted anyway. This poem is good...just what people should say when called chicken!

Very good job and no need to be embarrassed. This was quite a challenge for most of us and stretching ourselves brings out the best of us...you did great !!!

Hee hee! You made me smile. Who cares if it doesn't quite rhyme. I give an A+ for trying and I don't like to write poems either.~Ames

Now this made me smile, what a fun take on the prompt. Anyone who has read you for any length of time knows that you are certainly no chicken CJ! Kat
