Yet another book of a hundred 8-line poems.
Had a teacher like that
with a lean and hungry look,
full of passion and determined,
he built literary warriors,
each of us, once blundering,
he made wise in awareness
and able to think.
Line count: 8
For Express It In Eight, 10.14.21
Prompt: Lean and hungry look.
Note: Had to write this on reading Jaya’s. Her professor sounded just like Johnny Bridle (who is the subject of this poem). Thank you, Jaya.
