For Day 18 of National Poetry Month (NaPoWriMo) “Today’s prompt is to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word.” Here is mine.
Sometimes I get so frustrated
with how TV shows are rated.
“G” is not always entertaining
or good for children we are training.
We are showing them it’s okay to fight
with any weapon they have in sight.
Bullying, sarcasm, senseless noise
is this what we want for our girls and boys?
When did “comedy” change definitions?
There’s nothing funny in the latest renditions.
PG and whatever number they use
are nothing I’d want children to choose.
I give up in trying to define
what I’ll enjoy and feel is fine.
I would sooner be outdoors
or even doing dreaded chores,
I prefer to be writing rhymes
Do I watch TV? Sometimes.
