Dodo’s Lament – day 0 of NaPoWriMo

1 Apr

I’m going to attempt to meet the day 0 ‘early bird’ prompt – ‘why not try writing your own poem that begins “I guess it’s too late to live on a farm”?’ – with a ‘late bird’ rhyme…

I guess it’s too late…
…to start to lose weight
…to try to look great
…to ego-inflate

I guess it’s too late…
…to internet date
…to find a soulmate
…and procreate

I guess it’s too late…
…to self-flagellate
Better just wait…
To reincarnate

(c) A. Dodo, 1662
