The A Mused Poetry Contest 12/12/2020 – 1/8/2021 – Resolutions

A new year’s creeping up on us, and I think it’s time for some limericks.

  1. This month’s Theme is Resolutions.
  2. The Length is however long you need for a standard limerick: five lines of AABBA, in anapestic meter.
  3. You’re going to have to Rhyme; that’s what AABBA means…
  4. The Rating’s PGish. Yes, I’m aware of how these poems usually go. Be creative.
  5. And, above all, make us laugh. I want your life coach to drop his Downward Dog in convulsions of hysteria on his organic bamboo exercise mat.

You have till 10:00 a.m. MST next MONTH (January 8) to submit a poem.

DISCLAIMER: I have read the rules and did write a limerick/poem…whatever. However, I wrote it as it came to me and didn’t follow them to a T. Still posting because, well, I like it!

My Submission 🙂

On the treadmill I walk, my flubber a-flapping

Think I would have lost some with all that Christmas wrapping

So, here I am, 

Here it goes,

The chafing on my thighs as red as Rudolph’s nose

  1. Sara, I am glad you stay your authentic self when you write. You will continue to enjoy the process. Creativity does not necessarily have rules. By the way, I ‘get it’ on the chafing. I just want to stay healthy, whatever form that may take.🙂
