DEEP DESPAIR

jennysidebar_button_SAT-2[1]

I am happy to be joining Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock’s Off on My Tangent again this week.  The prompt is “Dear John”, and the word limit is 60!!  And I thought the100 word limit was difficult!  (I think I may have an extra word in my little contribution this week!  Please don’t kick me out!)  I am seldom serious about anything, so I hope that you will accept my little contribution as a joke.   I am not a writer, much less a poet, and I certainly wasn’t striving to be the next Poet Laureate!   

DEEP DESPAIR

John, dear John, won’t you come home?

John, dear John, don’t leave me alone.

Your absence I cannot abide.

I need you here by my side.

John, dear John, do you care

about the depths of my despair?

My heart is about to break -

You are my one and only mate.

So please come back, my John, dear John,

Before I depart with your best friend, Don!

Thank you for coming to visit me and my dear John.  Laurie

Forget about Don! If he is John's best friend, he's not a good catch either!!!

This prompt has been so much fun! Your addition is priceless. But, I think I'm with Judie. His best friend might not be such a great catch!

Namaste.........cj

HAHAHAHAHA ! That was a good laugh Laurie...I love twists that are clever and funny and don't you ever tell yourself again you are not a writer..."the proof is in the puddin'" as someone once said. You're great at this !!!

Sue said...

Yep, I think I'd move on from John AND Don...

=)

great job. a very fickle woman. :)

I admire any attempt to write verse for these weekly exercises! And I think humour is always a good way to go; there are usually enough sad stories.
As to the content of your SC-text, I am inclined to advise your protagonist to move on to some other guy and leave both John and Don behind!
Best wishes,
Anna

Great job! You are definitely a writer! I had to smile a little at your other post about your IC. I, too, have things like the laundry call me, and keep me away from what I truly love and want to do...finish my memoir!! So, why am I blogging instead of that?! I just thought of something....you know how there are "Sports Psychiatrists".....I think we need "Writers" ones, too!

Oops....the best friend?! Great stuff!

Purvi said...

Nice poetry, and what fun the end was!

Jenny said...

Cute link!

Thanks for sharing.

That is too funny! I went to school with some twins named Don and John. The last line cracked me up, picturing them. Love it!
