Poems written for "The Daily Poem" Contest inspired by various prompts.
|Round and Round
Have you been haunted by a tune
that got stuck in your head?
It wraps your mind in a cocoon
‘til other thoughts are dead.
It was that kid’s song, “A, B, C…”
about the alphabet,
you know – that ends in “X,Y,Z”
that no one can forget.
Where it came from, I do not know;
it suddenly appeared.
It won’t release me from its flow
which I find just plain weird!
To break this spell – it sounds bizarre -
replace it – so they claim.
I picked a twinkling little star.
It turns out they’re the same!
I’d tell you more but I must quit
‘cause I can’t concentrate.
That silly tune, I will admit,
has me in a checkmate.
