The A Mused Poetry Contest 9/26 – 10/2/2020


Eyes glued to the box,
There’s drama to be seen.
Then it happens at the climax,
How can they be so mean?
Time is limited,
One and a half minutes to be exact.
Then the commercials will be over,
Quick, it’s time to act.
He puts the kettle on,
As I scurry down the hall.
So quickly, that I nearly skid,
And take a dramatic fall.
Teas brewing, he hollers,
As theme music begins to play.
Frustrated I curse,
Why is the loo so far away?
As voices sound I don’t have time to flush,
It will just have to wait.
The next bit will be dramatic,
I don’t want to be too late.
As I scurry to my seat,
He sighs in disbelief,
Another set of ads eight minutes away,
The tea will be ready then, what a relief.

      1. lol just a vicious rumour I created Deb … opened it so easily BUT … there is no opportunity for conversation there! People can only email me direct and not read each others comments or cross fertilise as I call it.
        So deleted it in a blink and about to post that I am staying a while for community 🙂

      2. Well that’s good, that block editor is a pain though. I’m just copying old posts and updating. It seems to be a work around. I’m looking forward to finding something artificial for this week’s challenge 😊
