Welcome to my latest exercise in an attempt to reach my goal of being a prolific writer in 2022. So, in addition to writing 1 short story each week (Because Ray Bradbury said you can’t write 52 bad ones – challenge accepted!) I will be attempting to post an original poem each day in April. This is not going to be easy – I’ve not really written poetry since college. So, these will be thrown together each day and not very edited.
I can hear you now – sucky stories and bad poetry? Sign me up.

Why use a singular word
when five or seven will do the job
serve the purpose
and give us a reason to use
the word redundant?
Redundant systems ensure that the job gets done
even if something should become mechanically ineffective
So why not be verbose
to give everyone a fighting chance
to perfectly understand the thought that you
are trying to put across.
Lazy poets are not good
at using more words than needed
even for the day of the letter V.
