Wednesday’s Wondrous Writings: “Fairest”

Hello everyone! I’m here with another poem! This month I’m going to continue with free verse, though I want to pay particular attention to rhyming schemes and experiment with couplets. This first poem is inspired by a show I was watching about the 1920’s. It honestly wasn’t a very good show and so I came up with this poem as a way of making the story more interesting :P. Does anyone else love period dramas? I’d love some recommendations!

“Fairest”

Old lace

a clock ticking

subtle glances

she is picking

whom to wed

it’s easy as pie:

the bald man with beady eyes,

the one with a large wallet and larger lies,

or the one with letters in a heap

(ink stained hands

his love came cheap).

He is tired with unkempt hair

but oh, the writer, he’s the fairest of the fair.

***

Thanks for reading!
