Croakey Karaoke – A multiple Word Prompt Poem

 

 

When I’m singing at karaoke,

With my voice all crackly and croaky

My neighbours all shout

“Dear God! Cut it out”

When I start doing the Hokey-cokey.

 

 

They call it a thoughtless act

Well, I’ve never had that much tact,

And tactless though I am,

I don’t give a damn

I’ll keep on singing until I’m attacked.

 

 

Though they cry it gets on their wick,

Well, honestly, I don’t care a lick

They say it’s a cacophony

But I shout back with joy and glee.

“Have gratitude the walls are quite thick”

Summon

Summer Break

As I sat here with my pen in hand

I heard the loudest noise in the land

A mighty cacophony of sound

That knocked me off my seat and to the ground.

 

What frightful fracas, what dreadful din

My ears couldn’t cope and take it in.

I sat there and began to tremble

My wits, I started to reassemble.

 

Despite the fear, despite the quivers,

I calmed my nerves and stopped my shivers.

I began to summon all my strength

And gave myself a talk, at length.

 

I turned to face the beaconing truth,

My day of reckoning, my misspent youth.

Those symbols of my great mistake,

the kids had come home for summer break.

 

The End
