Centipede Dismay -TROCHEE

Centipede so tiny crawls
trekking on a fence
hundred legs, he never falls
I watch in suspense…

My two feet are bad, you see,
pain comes when I walk.
Should I be a centipede,
you would hear me squawk!


*Entry for Andrea’s 7/5 Trochee contest

    I think your suggestion might cure the problem Carolyn, What you'd do with all those feet is anyone's guess! My imagination runs riot with some poetry and the vision is fun!
