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

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.
