    A Couple of Couplets About Your Day

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Doug J, Jan 23, 2010.

    Okay - I only tried to do a game once before w. terrible results - but based on the "tavern" conversation in rhyme that was inspired yesterday by Wrey - here goes.

    You submit two rhyming couplets - one that comments on the previous submission - and a new one from you regarding what happened to you - or will happen - or you would like to happen.

    For example, I might submit:

    An overnight last night with all the kids home
    Meant that this morning the hot water is gone


    So your first entry would be a respons to that. Perhaps:
    Sorry to hear showers are cold
    But must be nice to have kids back in the fold


    And then you would add a couplet of your own:
    The morning is flying – it just go, go, go, goes
    How long it will take me to fix my plethora of typo’s


    (this last couplet you should comment on)

    SO - in short - FOUR LINES: two commenting on previous entry; and two about your day.

    Would appreciate comments on if this game sounds like fun.

    Typos to spare and run-ons for days.
    A giddy affair, the error of our ways.

    The cable is fixed and I get to see movies,
    with zombies and monsters and occasional boobies.

    (tee hee!) :D

    Ahh entertainment with pleasures most guilty
    We've come such a long way from black and white Uncle Miltie

    To my 20 year old son he'll get no more nice
    At 1:30 still in bed - means a bucket of ice

    (Wrey - you are just great! Excellent.)

    Nothing enhances the tube
    like a high-definitional boob

    I'm relaxing with a book here today
    in quite a self indulgent way

    (too slow - but I ain't changing it!)

    Fat but content is the man
    Who slacks off whenever he can

    Soon I shall go back to Uni
    Drinking enough to shame Booney (Australian references go go go!)

    If Nacki had been French I would have understood if he wrote poodle
    But since he's an Aussie I the word "Booney" I had to google

    The Saints game against the Vikings
    Will us Wisconsin's looking for Farve sightings

    Doug J you make me sound tacky
    My name is Nackl, it's not Nacki

    And for science nerds, classically four-eyed
    it's not pronounced 'sodium chloride'

    Though a sighting of Farve may leave one goose-bumbin',
    the thrill of the game is really what's jumpin'!

    The day has broke grey, cool, and sublime.
    A rarity here in Caribbean climes.



    *too slow on the draw, Wrey.*



    Sodium Chloride may leave one with thirst,
    but its just a game, so laugh and have mirth.

    I'll pass on the ice warriors chasing a puck
    It's not that it's bad, I just don't give a -- damn

    For my part I've spent some time editing my novel
    while watching science fiction DVDs in my hovel

    Editing can be tedious
    Fix only the most egregious

    Worked like a dog today, yet, still behind at work big time
    Need an ice cold Corona with a nice wedge of lime

    Toil and sweat, the grind won't end
    Beer makes it better, til we ascend

    Surfing the net, at work and bored
    being fired if caught is the only reward

    Be careful of that electronic surfing
    You never know if your boss is lurking

    Had a fun day, which was kind of suprising
    Didn't get slugged due to my sharp-tongued advising

    Beer might help at the end of the day
    might be even better to take the dog out to play

    House is getting painted, but it looks too pink
    walked in and saw it, and my spirits did sink

    Tests surprise us every day
    It's part of life we must needs play

    Today the air was unseasonably warm
    I took advantage, before the next storm.

    It is winter, snow must fall
    temperatures drop to the annoyance of all

    Hun said "no baby" so I'm in a bad mood
    alone at the office, I'll sit here and brood.

    She might hurt me, she has a mean punch
    I think I'll stay hidden 'till after my lunch

    One more blow, my bad day is double
    Sis can't have lunch, she has car trouble.

    Your days do not get better
    Though soon it will not matter

    More exams, are the name of the game
    The game of which is my very own shame

    Exams and tests are not fun, son
    But by now your brain weighs one ton

    So much to do, so much to do my head will blow up
    When I was a student why'd I ever want to grow up?

    The insurance game is a web filled with tangles
    They get you, and pin you, and (bleep) you from all angles.

    My head is still spinning from pill overload
    May the day end quickly before it explodes.

    Drugs take up a lot of wealth
    And they're damaging for the health.

    Aliens are taking over
    Oh crap they've taken Dover.
