A Purrformance

I leapt, jumped and acted the fool,

Formed a human pyramid

And balanced on a stool.

I stood on someone’s shoulders

Then came tumbling down,

And despite all that effort,

Your face still wore a frown.

Oh, the things we do for love,

Like hiring acrobats

And behaving so ridiculously

Just to entertain our cats.

Bonfire of Broken Dreams

It’s the burning autumn leaves

That’s making me cry so much,

It isn’t that you’re leaving,

It’s not that I miss your touch.

A Foolish Murder Mystery – A Poem written for the Genre Challenge.

 

This poem was written for the Haunted Wordsmith’s Genre Challenge.

Todays Genre is: Locked Room — a mystery in which the crime is apparently committed under impossible circumstances (but eventually elicits a rational explanation).

I have also included the following Word Prompts:

FOWC with Fandango — Fool

Which was made easier because three chose the same word: FOOL.

 

A Foolish Murder Mystery

 

The room was locked

That was for sure,

and so, I charged

and broke down the door.

The body lay

Against the fender,

The wound was bloody,

Red and tender.

Who could have killed

This dear old man?

He was all alone

And so, I began

To search for clues

To find the truth,

I became a champion,

I became the sleuth.

I searched around

Both high and low

And then I found

A strange gizmo.

I picked it up

Then heard a squawk

I saw a Parrot

That began to talk.

“Who’s a fool? You’re a fool!

It clearly said

Then I saw the blood

From the old man’s head.

My fingerprints

Were now upon

The object that was

The murder weapon.

I realised late

Why the Parrot exclaimed.

I was a fool

And I’d been framed.

Wisdom from a Fool.

Life; what you get out of it is

Integral to the amount of effort you put into it.

There are other factors that have an effect, but this one is fundamental and the only one we have any real control over.

 

Wisdom is easier to say than impart.

 

A Wise man will listen to a fool but a fool will not listen to a wise man.

Quote of the day – Be Wise

I wanted to share some quotes with you all.

The first one is attributed to the great William Shakespeare.

“A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

On a similar vein: This one is unattributed. 

“If you correct a wise man, he will thank you for it but if you correct a fool he will never forgive you.”

 Or

“A wise man can see more from the bottom of a well than a fool can from a mountain top.”

And

“A wise man will take advice from a fool but a fool doesn’t listen to a wise man.”

And Finally

“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad”

 

All the best

🙂
