Without a care,
February
will wear its frost
with wind-tossed sleet
embossed in white--
just the right stuff
to bite your nose.

The robins' trill greets the sunrise
with euphonious melody
in Mother Nature's symphony.

Mowing lawn
in summer shower
to earn fifty cents
for admission,
soft drink, and buttered popcorn.

Roy Rogers
chases bad guys
across the screen,
where good
always overcomes
evil.

One nugacity, two nugacities,
three nugacities, four,
become a pile and nothing more.

Rippling muscles
of strong backs
and fertile dreams
lift that rail,
lay that track
to forge a bond
from coast to coast,
which will become
the backbone
of our
national
community.

Harbinger
of treasures to come
among winter's withered dregs,
announcing Nature's resurrection:
purple crocus majesty!

The dilettante savant
became confidant to his aunt
when she haunted his lodgings
in Vermont.

When there is no room left in hell
gruesome
dead
will
walk
gruesome
earth
open
range
gruesome
when there is no room left in hell.

This 11 line Skinny poem was composed for Prompt #2 in the January, 2019, round of the "What's Your Line? contest.

African-American poet/songwriter/publisher Truth Thomas invented the Skinny as a vehicle for communicating bits of the human condition through crisp, vivid imagery.

The Skinny is constructed in eleven lines. The first and last lines use the same words, but not necessarily in the same order. All the other lines consist of one word only. Lines 2, 6, and 10 must be the same word, as demonstrated in the following link: https://theskinnypoetryjournal.wordpress.com/2015/09/25/poetry-form-matters-trut... .

Butterscotch wisps of cirrus clouds swarm over horizon
to greet the rising sun, as another day joins
the ritual of resurrection on a journey to eternity.

Aloysius P. Ledbetter
was a recalcitrant bed wetter.
The city elected him mayor,
where he became a BS conveyor.
