April is National Poetry Month. Writer’s Digest is challenging all poets to write one new poem a day. Today’s theme was “Resistance”.
If I’m lucky, I might have a few good, publishable poems out of this at the end. This was mine today:
The Irresistible Ménage à Trois
a pecan cluster,
and a caramel walked into a chocolate bar,
somewhere up in the Milky Way stratos-far,
becoming the Three Musketeers,
amid beers and cheers.
Creating quite a stir and a Krackel beTwixt the wrapper,
they melted together with a Snicker,
these birds of a feather,
and KitKat, the Chunky mixologist,
who’d been on a diet to reduce her Mounds,
her Reese’s Triple-D cups spilling over the counter,
causing a riot on Payday,
and a few casual encounters.
