Accidental -or maybe- Unrequited ‘Love’

My love, I saw you just
the other day.
I thought, “I must
see if she wants to play.”

But then, without a doubt
or e’en acknowledgement,
You ran around you ran about
you ran through excrement.

I know you weren’t
expecting me to be outside
your house, you weren’t
expecting me to be outside.

But, baby, you should know
That when you hand me
my steaming cup of joe
and smile, instead of run-ning,

Our love was meant to be.
So, tell this nice policeman
That you aren’t charging me
and that I get to be your man.

If that isn’t terrible, you need your ears checked. Also, you need to type up the warning label on the side of your shampoo, add far more adjectives, and turn it in to the Terrible Poetry Contest for this month. You have till this Thursday to enter!

      Really?? That’s wonderful! I don’t read them until judging time to be fair so I’m really looking forward to that.

    I didn’t realize this was supposed to be terrible as I started reading. Then I started wondering… what the…? Ha ha ha. Great job, Chelsea.

    Well played, Chel. You had me going, as I also thought this was a serious piece until the end. My thought was, “What is she doing?”🤣

      Tell me that one of those times was at ‘excrement.’ 😀 It rhymed so well!
