Poem-a-Day 2017 Writer’s Digest Challenge #27. Theme: 6 Words

A “mash poem” is my least favorite type of challenge.  (A mash poem is where you’re given a list of words and have to use some (or all) of them in a poem.  I didn’t go for the extra credit by using all six, so I just did three (crack, ramble, and wince).


Don Manatee

He liked to ramble on the airwaves
his CliffsNotes of journalism,
which made his listeners
crack up but never wise up,
froth and wince,
but never convince.
