2023 NaPoWriMo #27 (GOAT)

April is here again and that means its National Poetry Writing Month and for my second year I’ll be joining the 30 poems in 30 days challenge hosted by napowrimo.net. For this challenge, a poetry prompt will be provided daily during the month of April and if I can keep on track I’ll achieve the 30 poems in 30 days goal. So enough chatter…let’s go! It’s time for NaPoWriMo!

Write a poem titled “The _______ of _______” where this first blank is a very particular kind of plant or animal and the second bland is an abstract noun. The poem should contain at least one simile that plays on double meanings or otherwise doesn’t quite make sense.


The GOAT of Humility

Yo, Gruff, you da GOAT, man!

Nah, man, I’m just a regular old goat,
A tin nibbler, a chin tickler,
A tarnished old horn, A broken thorn,
Put out to pasture by the devil’s pastor.

I struggled with this one. I lost a couple days due to travel and trying to catch up but I feel like my mojo is stuck in another time zone.

Be well,
