National Poem Writing Poem 2018 Day#16: Write a poem that prominently features the idea of play. It could be a poem about a sport or game, a poem about people who play (or are playing a game), or even a poem in the form of the rules for a sport or game that you’ve just made up (sort of like Calvinball).
A pen or pencil.
A piece of paper.
A handful lazy moments.
And a big bowl of chit-chat.
Put some dots like big measles on the paper; not full, a part of it.
We’ll join the dots making straight lines, two dots at a time–
Once me or you, then you or me.
The straight line we’ll draw need tactics, only one,
There shall be no lines on three sides;
Thus not giving the opposition the chance to draw in
The fourth line creating a square.
You’re done. I can see.
Now let’s join it. Me first. You take rest a little bit.
Remember the one who joins the last dots making the last square is the winner.
And don’t forget or shall be forgotten the initial of the name or a symbol
Must be put in the box whoever of us create that box closing that side
By joining the two remaining dots.
Here’s I join first of the two dots; now it’s your turn.
How is your day going till now…
