National Poem Writing Month 2021: Poem xxvi: Binge

A Parody of Shakespeare’s Sonnet xviii (Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?) for National Poem Writing Month 2021 Day 26 prompt of parody.

shall I compare you to meditation?

keeping us calm in the locked chamber days.

rough winds do shakes aged wooden windows,

long will be days, summer hath just commenced.

sometime a pair of movies long it is;

add a whole season or few episodes,

summer heat can be sense on couch or bed.

by chance or nature’s course if it rainy eve

we never rest and keep on the watching.

nothing able to stop or halt streaming,

not thunderclap or lighting nor hunger.

the couch smell of sweats and sauces and fries.

so long the restaurants will cook and deliver,

so long stories streamed, our watch will end never.
