Poem of the Week 116

Words Behaving Badly

Sue Cowling

 

Words

Develop nasty habits –

Getting out of order,

Going off at tangents,

Breaking rules,

Attention seeking.

Give them fifty lines.

They take delight

In ambushing the reader,

Going round in gangs

With their unsuitable friends

Imagining they’re poems!

Words –

I’d keep an eye on them

If I were you.
