O is for…Oops! (#AtoZ)

Here is my latest post for the #AtoZChallenge for April 2022. My title and theme for this challenge is “Seriously Silly Poetry” in recognition of April being poetry month and also wanting to do something fun and playful to celebrate spring. I hope you enjoy this series.


Oh, I must say it’s pretty tricky to title a poem this way;

Rhyming with oops can get one tangled in loops;

Let alone the risk of letting loose an impolite p— oops!

Oh, that was almost an accident in the making;

So sorry, so sorry for my impolite thinking;

But with a title like Oops! I’m jumping through hoops,

Trying to keep this poem free of such toots.

Oops! Oops! There I go again. I’d better stop now while I can.

Be well,



  1. Haha, another brilliant example of Seriously silly poetry!

      Haha. Yup…that was a little while ago. I’m not sure I could read this poem to that tunes best though 😅

    Nicely done Monty 🙂

    It’s a good job, that paratroops,
    …. don’t say oops,
    When they drop down in large flowing groups,
    … and land ever so softly without even a ‘whoops’,
    or a roll over into some fetid field poops,
    Making them more of a style of shocktroops,
    over that of a bungling recruits,
    Scurrying towards the loops and hoops,
    …. of their graceful air pursuits!

    Hehe! Oops! I might have laughed so hard I “dropped a cookie” or “stepped on a loose board” unless I “shot a cowboy”… euphemisms abound for that which you might have had an oops!
