The Queen of Mundane!

I don't like the ways of my arid tongue

I don't like the stiff ways of my pen

I've been trying to sing what's already been sung

And I'm starting to lose my zen.


It feels like my head is made of bricks

Mould is working its way inside,

I'm in permanent stupor and all fresh out of tricks,

mouth agape and eyes open wide!


I hold my reading books upside-down

I write nonesense and misspel my own name

Why, a new celebrity has come to town!

It is I, the great Queen of Mundane!


I loathe my awful lack of insight!

I feel compelled to throw myself in a pit!

Because lately it seems like whatever I write

is a big steaming pile of @#$%!


Bow down as I cross on my chariot. 

Praise me! Praise me! Quick! Before I go insane!

For I am not just any ordinary idiot!

I am the great Queen of Mundane!

Thanks Don! I do get a kick out if it! I've written the silliest things, even limericks, and made the stupid mistake of posting them on a certain social network and gotten shunned! Which evenrually led me to WOL, thank you very much! Sometimes I got absolutely nada to say but my fingers are itchy! It's nice to be understood! Australia, eh? Not a bad idea at all! Thank you again! And yeah screw competitions and winning prizes, it would sure be nice but it's not why we do it!
Keep on
Dear Don!
Just write
And you'll be alright!

Or something...!

I also have a misspelling problem, May
I rhyme nonsense stuff all the time
No, we're not ordinary idiots
We're idiots both in our prime

Don't give up, fly your chariot to Australia
'Tis quite dry here, (with plenty of chicanes)
I'll take you on a tour our or country
We'll bow down to the Queen of Mundane

Now Mae take a note of what Cynthia said
Whack nonsense together for fun
You get such a kick out of doing it, yes?
Such a pity it don't win prizes when done

(But that's not why we write poetry Don...)

I must go along with friend Po
That your rhyming skills, Mae, are top-notch
Look out for the rhymers with nothing to say
Mundane/nonsense, learn, yes, and watch 😎

Thank you for the kind words Po! I've read your work too and I find it unique! 🌷

You deserve that Crown Mae

I adore poems that tell a story. Your rhyming skill is as good as it gets.

…"I am not just any ordinary idiot!

For you 'are' the Great Queen of Mundane!

This however is not mundane in any way shape or form

Thank you Cynthia! A wise woman once told me "Girl, try not to take yourself too seriously!" and I try to abide by that! I don't always succeed but I have my moments!🎈

And proud of it! Always a good sign that 'better' things lie ahead when you can whack nonsense together for the sheer delight of it.
