2023 NaPoWriMo #29 (The Full English)

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 two-part poem that focuses on a food or type of meal. Describe the food or meal as a if it were a specific type of person. Give the food/meal at least one line of spoken dialogue.


The Full English


British Air’s Flight 169 (London to Shanghai) Menu called to me with a posh accent: “Try my Full English – It’ll put the stiff back in your walking stick!”. My last chance at this tradition, I decided to give it a go with 90 minutes flight left to go.


Oh no! We are on the descent and I’ve got to go! Whoever thought it was a good idea to serve beans on a plane must be quite slow. Oh no, I’m going to blow!

Another weak entry, but I’m now all caught up. One more to wrap up the series for the year. I might be going out with a whimper but I’ll take the participation prize.

Be well,



  1. I like this one. You’re right. Serving Beans on a plane is a terrible idea!

    Perhaps not Shakespeare but I’m not going to deride humor – even if it is “low-brow”! I still laughed!

      Good for that!!


  3. I was tempted to write this poem on Day 29:

    I wanted to go out
    with a bang!
