Multiple Word Prompt Poem – Being left alone.

A marriage, a vicar?

Get me some liquor,

I’d rather get drunk than get wed.


There are no photos to post

Of a wedding toast

I just stayed home and in bed.


No Bishop or priest

And no wedding feast

to enable our loved ones are fed.


My attitude stinks?

It’s more honest methinks,

And proof that I’m not easily lead.


Harmony and Love?

Good heavens above,

I’m sure I can do better than that.


The world’s end may come

But with less fuss than some,

I’ll just stay at home with my cat.

Inspired by the following word prompts.





Today’s things are: bishop, vicar, post

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. I love this! I really don’t like poetry at all unless it’s like this with a good cadence and it’s fun. It’s in the same vein as one you wrote previously that I loved too but the title slipped out of mind as I’m writing this!

    1. Thank you. I didn’t particularly want it to sound like I was having a go at Marriage itself, which I think is a marvellous institution. It was more about someone who was withdrawing into themselves and feeling reclusive. 🙂 I am glad you liked it.
