More Fun Than a Slinky

Wittiness is his forte
Always a surprise ending
And what he had meant to say
Not always what he’s thinking

Of the sonnet he is king
I wish I could write as he
Does with poetry that rings
One liners that sting like a bee

Spying his link in Mr. Linky
I must go see what he’s shared
So much more fun than a slinky
What serious subject he’s dared

To joke about today
In a most unexpected way


Yesterday’s prompt at dVerse Poets Pub was to pick a favorite dVerse community poet (or other poet, but I stuck with dVerse folks) and write a poem about them or as a tribute to how you appreciate their writing. The only rule is not to mention the poet, so I haven’t.
