Woodpecker Tap-tapping

There was a woodpecker whacking,
Continuous sound nerve-racking.
Distressed in the mind,
Making my teeth grind,
Tap-tapping will send me packing.

Standing outside, I clapped my hands,
Sending him off to no-man's land.
But no, he just sat,
And started to tap.
His tapping, how will I withstand?



For Poet Destroyer's contest, 'Silly (Funny)'

    Connie, wow! I can't believe I forgot to thank you for the nice and silly poem you entered in my contest. A late late late CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you for the smirks and smiles your poem gave me while reading it. Hope you can forgive me, it is not like me to stoop low and diss all who support me or my contest. Even if I get no response, everyone still matters, and I try my best... Love love LINDA...

    Reads like a winner to me..Those Woodpeckers can be annoying especially if one is trying to sleep and the Peckers has found an aluminum pole on which to tap...I got a chuckle thinking about that Woodpecker..Thanks for stopping by..I am glad that it brought back a memory for you..Sara
